It is not known what caused the Cardiac Arrest of Bronny James, LeBron’s oldest Son

Bronny James, the eldest son of LeBron James, suffered a cardiac arrest during basketball practice this week. He is 18 years old, and he went to USC as the top freshman recruit in the NCAA this season. A family spokesperson He said Bronny is now out of the intensive care unit and in a stable condition. More details what could be the cause of the sudden cardiac arrest not currently available.

Although regular exercise is known to be one of the best ways to protect the heart in the short and long term, sudden cardiac events in healthy young athletes remain a concern, especially in recent years when several high-profile athletes have suffered acute events such as Bronny’s cardiac arrest. Many athletes already have an undiagnosed cardiac condition, but these are extremely rare. Its 2017 report published in New England Journal of Medicine It is estimated that the frequency of cardiac arrest during competitive sports was 0.76 cases per 100,000 athlete-years, with a survival of 43.8% after such events.

Pre-screening Athletes to determine the risk of sudden cardiac events is complex, and most medical associations do not recommend electrocardiograms or prescreened echocardiograms in athletes who have no known cardiac risk factors. Rare disorders such as a congenital heart condition, an abnormally enlarged heart, and a family history of cardiac disease in young family members can be addressed on an individual basis, but most athletes who experience cardiac arrest have no history of such disorders in their own or their family’s health history.

Earlier this year, a Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin he suffered a cardiac arrest during a “Monday Night Football” game, and was quickly revived on the field and released from the hospital a few weeks later, in good condition. Hamlin’s cardiac event was caused by blunt trauma to the chest, which led to a rare event known as the feeling of the heart, whereby the heart beats at the right (or wrong) time in exactly the right (or wrong) position in the chest to trigger a fatal irregular heart rhythm, or arrhythmia. Because of the immediate response on the field to Hamlin’s collapse, first responders were able to restart his heart using a combination of CPR and electric shock defibrillators.

Just last year, USC Freshman Vince Iwuchukwu he suffered a cardiac arrest during summer practice, and was revived on the scene by USC’s medical staff. He received immediate CPR and shock defibrillation, and returned to the basketball court six months later. Automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, enable the responder to deliver life-saving electrical shocks to revive a heart that has resulted in arrest. These devices are located in schools, airports, shopping malls, and many grocery stores.

With wearable health trackers now the norm, several studies have shown that these could be vital early detection cardiac issues, including abnormal rhythms and even heart attack. However, we are probably many years away from this technology becoming a foolproof way to truly detect chronic or acute issues. That being said, the possibility of better and more accurate monitoring of wearables and smart watches is likely in our future.

According to early reports, Bronny is thankfully recovering from his sudden cardiac arrest, thanks to a quick medical response from the USC medical team on the scene. In addition, the fact that he is a young, healthy person bodes very well for his recovery.
