Presenting to Denver Area of Family ChildCare Providers

On April 11, I spoke to the monthly meeting of Denver Association of Family ChildCare providers at their monthly meeting about Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Young Children. I reviewed different conditions that can kill even young children including LongQTS syndrome, ARVD, Hypotrophic Cardiomyopathy, Brugadas, CPVT, and Commotio Cordis (blow to chest causing death). I handed out information that included a pediatric risk assessment form and made them aware of our Kick Start My Heart Foundation that helps funds AED programs for nonprofit agencies.

Tragically, a 16 year old was killed the same day by being hit in the chest by a softball in a San Diego school.Child-Care-top
