Emma Bradley from Bishop Brady High School was one of 120 high school athletes learning to recognize potentially life-threatening conditions that sometimes arise in sports. The 4-hour course focuses on head (concussion) and neck injuries, cardiac emergencies and exertional heat illness. Students, who are generally sophomores or juniors, learn about these conditions and become extra sets of eyes on fields and in gyms and rinks for the rest of their high school careers. The athletes learn key signs and symptoms for each type of condition and taught to immediately report problems to their coaches. In the case of cardiac emergencies, the students are also taught hands-only CPR and AED use. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death in young athletes. You've read or heard it in the news: a young, apparently-healthy, athlete collapses and dies without warning. Appropriate immediate care can save 70% of these lives. THANKS to Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.
