Sudden Cardiac Death
If you've ever heard of or known someone who suffers a "sudden death", it can be quite a disturbing story. Many times, what seems to be a relatively young and healthy person can just "drop dead".
Known as sudden cardiac death (SCD), it is a sudden, unexpected death caused when the heart stops functioning. The cause of approximately 325,000 adult deaths in the US each year, it is the largest cause of natural death and responsible for 50% of heart disease deaths in the US.
