Live Q And A: Find Out If Your Student Athlete Is At Risk for Sudden Heart Failure


If defibrillation is administered within one minute of collapse, the survival rate for sudden heart failure goes up 90 percent. “Timing is key to survival. Waiting even 10 minutes to defibrillate drops the chances of survival to 10 percent,” says John Lynn Jefferies, MD.

This issue has really hit home for all of us here recently and we want to do what we can to help shed light on this issue.

This is a free, live, on-line Q and A where you and your readers can ask questions in real time.  It’s a chance to talk to knowledgeable and experienced doctors and get answers right on the spot. 

The Q and A takes place April 9th from 7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. EST with Jeffrey Towbin, MD and John Lynn Jefferies, MD.

We would love for as many people as possible to benefit from this. Please feel free to help spread the word! Drop me a line if you need further info!
