A Promise to Our Children
The biggest misconception about Sudden Cardiac Arrest is that it just happens and there’s nothing you can do about it. But the truth is, we can do something. Take a look at how Parent Heart Watch is compelling parents, educators, coaches, counselors and anyone who works with youth to Take the Prevention Promise.
Keep Their Hearts in the Game
California law mandates SCA Prevention Training for coaches, sports officials, and administrators of youth sports programs. Californians can take our FREE training, produced in collaboration with Parent Heart Watch and Coach Safely. Watch this 1-minute preview, then register for the training.
Don’t Just Check the Box
Too often, risk factors and symptoms of a potential heart condition get missed at home, on the field, and in the doctor’s office. We need to be more intentional about the cardiac risk assessment of our youth. Let’s stop checking the box and check in on family heart history and warning signs that put kids at risk for sudden cardiac arrest.
EKG Screenings Protect Young Hearts
One in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that can put them at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. But most children don’t report or recognize symptoms. So why aren’t EKG screenings part of well-child or pre-participation sports exams? Parent Heart Watch parents share the stories of their lost youth to help other families avert this tragic loss of life. Take the Prevention Promise and support our vision to eliminate preventable deaths and disabilities from SCA in youth by 2030.
Call Push Shock
Bystander intervention is the only way to increase survival rates for Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims. Research shows that once the public understands that their intervention could mean the difference between life and death, they are willing to Call Push Shock.

Greetings, Youth Caregiver. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to be prepared in the event of a cardiac emergency. Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the #1 killer of student-athletes and the leading cause of death on school campuses. 1 in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk. Learning the Cardiac Chain of Survival will make it POSSIBLE for you to protect young hearts. Watch the five steps that can save a life. Make this Mission Possible.
The Most Important ASK You’ll Make
1 in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk for sudden cardiac arrest – the #1 killer of student-athletes and part of the #2 medical cause of death under 25. Many heart conditions go unrecognized either because there are no symptoms or symptoms are not recognized, and family risk factors are unknown. Know the warning signs and check your child’s heart. Take the Prevention Promise.
