Sudden death in athletes
It is estimated that between 1 and 3 of every 100,000 apparently healthy young athletes develop an arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) suddenly that causes their sudden death during exercise.
Males are affected up to 10 times more often than females. Basketball and football players in the United States and soccer players in Europe may be at higher risk.
In general, the causes of sudden death during exercise are very different in young athletes than in older athletes. However, asthma, heat stroke, and the use of recreational drugs or performance-enhancing substances can also cause death due to the sudden onset of cardiac arrhythmias in all athletes.
Some athletes have warning signs, such as fainting or shortness of breath (dyspnea). However, athletes do not recognize or report these symptoms, and the first serious sign ends in a heart attack.
