Important SCA Legislation Passed in the CT General Assembly


In the final days of the 2014 Connecticut General Assembly, law makers passed important legislation aimed at reducing the number of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) deaths during youth athletic events. SCA is the leading cause of death in young athletes. Most often, the death occurs during athletic training or competition. The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Program established by the recently passed legislation will educated coaches, parents, and youth athletes on the signs of a SCA and what lifesaving actions must be taken if a sudden cardiac event occurs on the athletic field.
