What is Commotio Cordis?
Commotio cordis refers to sudden arrythmic death caused by a low or mild chest wall impact, and is seen mostly in athletes between the ages of 8 and 18 who are partaking in sports with projectiles such as baseballs, hockey pucks, or lacrosse balls. These projectiles can strike the athletes in the middle of the chest with low impact yet with enough force to cause the heart to enter an arrhythmia. Without immediate CPR and defibrillation the prognosis of commotio cordis is not very good. One Beat CPR + AED, a master distributor of Philips AED devices, provides tips on how to prevent, and AEDs to treat, commotio cordis.
