Sudden unexpected death in young athletes: a review

Sudden unexpected death in young athletes: a review

Alaska Medicine 31(4): 144-147

Sudden death is a startling and tragic event that often sends ripples through our communities and even across our nation. Estimates have suggested that between 10 and 30% of adults die suddenly and unexpectedly and maybe 5% of these are related to sports. The purpose of this study is to examine the topic of sudden death in the young athlete through a review of several larger national studies. Then the etiology of these tragedies will be discussed. Finally, a review of the sudden death in adolescents and young adults in Alaska over the last 12 months will be presented.
