Although cardiac-related sudden death during sports is a rare occurrence, it is extremely devastating to all involved. Therefore, a focus on prevention is important to ensure youth are safe to play. Dr. Candice discusses the preparticipation physical evaluation (PPE) and cardiac-related sudden death in youth sports with Pediatric Cardiologist, Dr. Michelle Wallace.

This episode covers:

-Why the PPE is so important?

-Cardiac elements of the PPE.

Ask your Pediatrician if your child needs a PPE?

Thank You, Dr. Michelle Wallace!
