  • Overview

    Sudden cardiac deaths are rare among elite athletes. Yet these abrupt events are confounding, in part, because they strike some of our most physically dynamic individuals, and because there remains a lengthy list of potential causes. How are we advancing our grasp of the underlying triggers of these life-threatening arrhythmias? Host Dr. Doug Weaver talks with Dr. Doug Zipes, distinguished professor emeritus of medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine, about the balance of uncovering at-risk patients, while maintaining reasonable restrictions on their athletic activities, and avoiding unnecessary tests for those who are not in danger.
