Project S.A.V.E. was created to educate school systems and doctors about pediatric sudden cardiac arrest.
We hope to raise awareness about the frequency of sudden cardiac arrest, possible early warning signs and the need for a timely response.
- Pediatric sudden cardiac death happens without warning.
- The sudden loss of heart function affects 600 to 1,000 children and adolescents, in addition to 350,000 adults, every year in the United States.
- During the past five school years, at least 15 students and 12 adults have died from probable sudden cardiac arrest in Georgia schools.
