Cardiac Disorders reviews the fact that sudden cardiac death is the leading cause of death in the United States resulting in approximately 300,000 deaths per year. The DVD also discusses the fact that this medical episode is most well defined in those individuals over the age of 35 and most problematic for people under the age of 35. In that regard, the DVD looks at the pros and cons of the tools/procedures that are available to help identify athletes who are the highest cardiac risk.
