The Second Annual Think Tank on Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young: Developing a rational, reliable, and sustainable national health care resource. A report from the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium.


Journal Article

Sudden cardiac death in the young (SCDY) spans gender, race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic class. The loss of any pediatric patient is a matter of national and international public health concern, and focused efforts should be aimed at preventing these burdensome tragedies. Prepared by members of the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium, this White Paper summarizes and reports the dialogue at the second Think Tank related to the issues and the proposed solutions for the development of a national resource for screening and prevention of SCDY. This Think Tank, sponsored by the Cardiac Safety Research Consortium and the United States Food and Drug Administration, convened on February 18, 2016, in Miami, FL, to identify and resolve the barriers that prevent early identification of patients at risk for SCDY. All potential stakeholders including national and international experts from industry, medicine, academics, engineering, and community advocacy leaders had an opportunity to share ideas and collaborate.
