It Seemed Like A Good Idea at the Time

And, the changes keep coming faster and more furious all of the time. Join us for a discussion ranging from immobilization to supplemental oxygen and everything in between.

Sudden Death in Young Athletes

The possibility that young physically fit athletes may be susceptible to sudden cardiac death seems counterintuitive. Nevertheless, such catastrophes occur, often in the absence of prior symptoms and the emotional and social impact can be profound. Two conditions, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and commotio cordis together are responsible for almost half of the deaths. This presentation will examine these conditions in detail and provide EMS with useful information for helping to reduce the incidence of sudden death in the young athletes within their local communities

Kenneth is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas where he serves as Chief of EMS Education Development for a multi-jurisdictional EMS system.  Kenneth also serves as a Content Consultant for various project teams at the American Heart Association.
