Orange County, California, has the highest number, per capita, of NCAA, Olympic and elite athletes in the nation. The county also experiences a disproportionately high number of catastrophic events on the playing field, especially in junior and high school sports.

In January, the CHOC Children’s Heart Institute is presenting the first annual CHOC symposium on the diagnosis, therapy and prevention of sudden cardiac arrest in children and adolescents. Faculty from the Heart Institute as well as from nationally lauded pediatric heart programs will discuss the following topics:

  • Clinical syndromes associated with risk of sudden death
  • Use of automated external and implantable defibrillators
  • Screening, with emphasis on defining the evidence for, and areas of controversy in, management decisions

CHOC designates this educational activity for a maximum of 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.™ For more information or to register, visit www.choc.org/ cardiacconference or call (800) 329-2900.
