USA focusing on youth heart attacks

California is contemplating a new bill to screen their youth for potential cardiac arrest issues. The program would be run by the state in contract with schools that would participate in a 3-year study.

The screening will take children from grades 5-12, especially athletes in order to prevent any sudden cardiac arrest condition that would otherwise go undetected.

Dr. Karen Furie, Chief of Neurology at Rhode Island Hospital and Chair of the Department of Neurology at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School in Providence, states that the results of statistics gained over the years till now, indicate that the youth in the US are not being well managed regarding growing heart issues. New cases of a debilitating and deadly type of stroke which causes bleeding in the brain, have been increasing in the US.

Governor Tony Evers signed a bipartisan legislation in Waukesha in April, to highlight cardiac arrest risk in youth and more importantly young athletes. The aim of the bill is to inform students about heart conditions and get an EKG (a test that measures the electrical signals in the heart), test for youth athletes.

The bill is being pushed by Senator Brian W Jones, in an article written by Santa Barbara News Press they have quoted the senator as saying, “Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death of student-athletes with an estimated 23,000 children under 18 lost each year in the U.S.,” the article and the senator mention no source for this information.

When AFIPN checked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC Wonder site for cause of death numbers in the 0-18 age bracket, our search for 2019 pre Covid came up with 790 deaths as a result of diseases of the heart. Here we have a Californian senator claiming 23,000 heart related deaths on average per year. A big difference between the truth and a lie to try and normalise childhood heart attacks.

This bill being introduced is a new thing, a study and screening approach, which prior to 2022 was never deemed necessary for longevity of youth, especially athletes. One does question, what changed in 2022 to undertake such a program through a legislative bill?
