Sudden cardiac death screening


Description

Sudden cardiac death screening tests are offered by the heart doctor NYC specialist, Dr. Steven Reisman, a best rated cardiologist at the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center. Sudden cardiac death, which can have multiple causes, accounts for the largest cause of natural death – approximately 350,000 deaths per year in the United States – topping deaths from lung cancer, breast cancer, and AIDS. 

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function (sudden cardiac arrest). Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is responsible for half of all heart disease deaths.

Sudden cardiac death occurs most frequently in adults in their mid-30s to mid-40s, and affects men twice as often as it does women. This heart condition is very rare in children, affecting only 1 to 2 per 100,000 children each year.

The heart conditions that the NYC cardiologist will check for that can lead to sudden cardiac death include:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Coronary artery disease. Most cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur in people who have coronary artery disease
  • A prior heart attack
  • Enlarged heart (cardiomyopathy)
  • Valvular heart disease
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Cardiomyopathy- when your heart muscle becomes enlarged or thick, so it’s weakened.
  • Electrical problems in your heart: primary heart rhythm abnormalities and include conditions such as Brugada’s syndrome and long QT syndrome.

Because sudden cardiac arrest / sudden cardiac death tends to be linked with coronary artery disease, the same factors that put you at risk of coronary artery disease may also put you at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. These include:

  • A family history of coronary artery disease
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Drinking too much alcohol (more than one to two drinks a day)
