Sudden unexpected death among young adults under the age of 30



Sudden unexpected death among young adults under the age of 30



Tidsskrift for den Norske Laegeforening 105(25): 1681-1683, 1727



Three young adults resuscitated after a sudden unexpected cardiac arrest are described. Until recently little has been known about the events immediately preceding sudden death in a young population. We now assume that death in the majority of these patients is initiated by ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia. Commonly these patients have an underlying cardiac abnormality. We discuss the various types of diseases one can expect to find and the value of electrophysiological testing, especially with regard to prognosis.
