Filmmaker John Hughes' Recent Untimely Death is a Call for Better Understanding ,of Sudden Cardiac Death, the Leading Cause of Natural Death in the U.S.
Date:9/15/2009

With as many as 300,000 reported cases annually, sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the leading cause of natural death in the U.S. Swift, unexpected, and often occurring in previously asymptomatic individuals, SCD generally results in death within six minutes in the absence of appropriate medical attention. Even with such prompt emergency medical attention, only five percent of SCD victims survive. Contrary to common perception, SCD is not the same as a heart attack.

(Vocus) September 15, 2009 -- According to Dr. Daniel Weiss, the recent untimely death of filmmaker John Hughes is a call for Americans to better understand sudden cardiac death -- the leading cause of natural death in the U.S. -- and the controversy surrounding the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), currently the only known treatment for SCD prevention.    Dr. Weiss is a cardiologist and chief medical officer of Boca Raton-based Vicor Technologies. Vicor Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: VCRT) is a biotechnology company focused on the commercialization of innovative, non-invasive medical devices and diagnostics using its patented, proprietary PD2i algorithm and software to stratify patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and trauma victims in need of life saving intervention.
