Fainting: The #1 Warning Sign
Know a child who faints?
Did you know that sometimes a faint is more than a faint? It may be a symptom of a heart condition that could lead to sudden death if untreated.
Signs it could be a heart condition
Family history of unexpected, unexplained sudden death under age 40.
Fainting or seizure during exercise, excitement or startle.
Consistent or unusual chest pain and/or shortness of breath during exercise.
Talk to your doctor
Sudden fainting with exercise or because of a startle needs to be checked out. Ask your doctor if you or your child could be at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. Diagnosis is often the difference between life and death.
