an Australian child dies of SADS
This website is in memory of those who have passed as a result of SADS or Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.
It has also been created to increase awareness of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome and to provide helpful and supportive online community where family members can reach out to others.
Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome is common in people aged 5 – 35 it is an inherited disease which creates an abnormality in the heart, causing it to speed up/slow down to the point where it can no longer pump blood, in some cases, however, the heart will stop completely.
A heart condition such as this is hard to detect as there are very few, sometimes no prior symptoms ; most GP’s and health professionals remain unaware of this ‘SILENT KILLER’.
