Connor Senn Symposium on Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the Athlete

Saturday, December 9, 2023

This conference has already taken place.

The Ohio State University - Columbus, OH
1 Day Conference December 9th, 2023
6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours


Currently not all those caring for athletes including cardiologist, sports medicine providers, athletic trainers have a clear understanding of the causes and current research regarding of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in the athlete.  They are not clear on whether screening of athletes with cardiac studies would be helpful nor are they clear on an emergency plan once a SCA occurs.  Reports often indicate improper delays in treatment and a gap regarding whether an athlete can return to play after SCA. This symposium will detail causes and mechanisms of SCA; review how to develop an emergency plan for initial treatment for SCA; how to provide a proper work up; and then, with shared decision making, formulate a plan for return to play if feasible.

Dates and Times

Start: 12/9/2023 8:00 AM
End: 12/9/2023 4:45 PM


At the conclusion of this continuing medical education activity participants should be able to:

1. Discuss the epidemiology, causes, and work up of sudden cardiac arrest in the athlete.
2. Review the current recommended screening protocols for athletes in the US and should this change.
3. Restate current research into mechanisms of cardiac disease that may lead to sudden cardiac arrest in the athlete.
4. Discuss responsibilities and protocols caring for athletes on the field and court and first responder and post arrest recommendations.
5. Review return to play evaluations and recommendations after sudden cardiac arrest.
