SADS (Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes) Foundation Overview
Your child or a young person you know may be at risk for sudden cardiac death due to an inherited condition. He or she will appear healthy, and in most cases, you will have absolutely no idea that something might be wrong. Once diagnosed, these conditions are treatable. Without diagnosis and treatment, they can be fatal.
Nearly 4,000 children die each year due to undetected cardiac arrhythmias. One in 2,500 of them are at risk of a sudden cardiac arrest. These deaths can be prevented if more people are aware of the SADS warning signs. The Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation is dedicated to saving the lives and supporting the families of young people genetically predisposed to sudden death due to cardiac arrhythmias.
We are making great strides raising awareness of SADS. More people are learning the warning signs, and contacting the SADS Foundation if they think their child may possibly be affected. We applaud this effort, and hope that soon - every person will know what SADS stands for, what the warning signs are, and what to do.

In June 2011, my then 13-month old ...
