How can you tell if your child is at risk for a Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

The chair of Deborah’s Pediatric Cardiology Department, Dr. Cara Garofalo, was recently featured on Hurley in the Morning with Harry Hurley, discussing Sudden Cardiac Arrest in children. A Sudden Cardiac Arrest is one of the most devastating events that can occur in a child, and many parents aren’t even aware of it before it’s too late. But as Dr. Garofalo explains, there are often telltale signs that can indicate a child might be at risk. If these warnings are detected in time, Dr. Garofalo explains, there are plenty of steps that can be taken to prevent a tragedy before it strikes.
