When a child collapses from sudden cardiac arrest, every second counts. Having an emergency response plan in place can mean the difference between life and death.
Sudden cardiac arrest in children is often preventable! Be prepared for a cardiac emergency, recognize SCA when it occurs, and take immediate action.
Cardiac arrest in children may not be easily recognizable. In cases where seizures and abnormal breathing are present, respond as if SCA.
