A few years back, a group of parents were interviewed after losing their child to sudden cardiac arrest. Seventy-two percent of them said their child exhibited a warning sign – they just didn’t recognize it as a warning sign. It is true that sudden cardiac arrest can happen suddenly and unexpectedly, but it is important to know the sudden cardiac arrest symptoms.

  • fainting or seizures during exercise
  • unexplained shortness of breath
  • dizziness
  • extreme fatigue
  • a racing heart
  • the sudden and unexplained death of a family member under the age of 50 (SIDS, drowning, single auto accident).
