Study Shows Simple Measures May Help Prevent Sudden Death Event in Young Athletes
Date:2/24/2009

P>

The increased use of chest protectors and soft, age appropriate "safety" baseballs are now recommended in youth baseball leagues by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Division to reduce commotio cordis risk and other injuries. "The best preventative measures may be changes in the rules, i.e. eliminating blocking shots with the chest in lacrosse and hockey players and coaching players to protect their chests," said Link. "Increased awareness of commotio cordis is also imperative, especially in those that may be first responders such as parents, coaches, game officials and medical personnel. In addition, with the increased use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED) at athletic events, commotio cordis survival rates will improve."
