The Facts

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the leading cause of death in sports and all school campuses. 7000-10,000 students die annually.

EKGs and Physical Exams

A simple, 5 min, NON-invasive ECG measures the electrical rhythm of the heart. Physical exams identifies 7% of abnormalities. Family History identifies 20%. ECG's identifies 92%.

Bystander CPR

Bystander CPR saves thousands of lives annually. It increases the likelihood of survival by 80%. You, too, can be a hero. Training and hands only CPR/AED is performed by DeJavu Safety Solutions.

COVID Recommendations for Youth

Recommendations range from taking a comprehensive cardiac risk assessment, which can include an electrocardiogram, to consulting with a cardiology specialist to evaluate potential heart disorders that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). While future events will be ECG screening and training in CPR/AED, check out a few of our Health Fairs since 2014.

What Is SCA?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the condition in which the heart unexpectedly stops beating. 

SCA is NOT a heart attack. Victims may never experience warning signs.
