What is cardiac arrest?

A sudden cardiac arrest can happen when the heart suddenly stops pumping blood. Athletes experience sudden cardiac arrest at a rate of around one or two per 100,000.

A hard blow to the chest can cause it. Athletes playing sports with projectiles, including baseballs, hockey pucks and lacrosse balls, are prone to arrhythmic events called "commotio cordis," which is caused by a sudden blunt impact to the chest.

Alex Jahangir, executive medical director of the medical center for trauma, burn, and emergency surgery in Nashville, told USA TODAY on Tuesday that cardiac arrest can come from a variety of things.

Some people have a problem with their blood vessels because they don't have enough Oxygen. People get killed. Jahangir has been treating professional athletes for nearly two decades.
