Home / Sudden Cardiac Death Screening Tests
Sudden cardiac death is a sudden loss of consciousness resulting in the loss of life. Frequently these individuals have underlying heart blockage, enlarged heart and may also have prior symptoms of chest discomfort or shortness of breath. A cardiac consultation along with non-invasive testing can help determine those at risk for sudden cardiac death.
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a sudden, unexpected death caused by loss of heart function (sudden cardiac arrest). Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is responsible for half of all heart disease deaths.
Sudden cardiac death occurs most frequently in adults in their mid-30s to mid-40s, and affects men twice as often as it does women. This heart condition is very rare in children, affecting only 1 to 2 per 100,000 children each year.
Dr. Reisman and his entire staff are the best in New York City. I was able to get an appointment quickly and didn’t have to wait to see Dr. Reisman long for my appointment (less than 5 minutes). I had a very positive experience and thrilled to have found such a great Cardiologist. I am a very anxious patient and the staff was very compassionate from the front desk to all the technicians to Dr. Reisman. I would highly recommend this heart specialist to friends and family! ~ Google
