The SADS Foundation is dedicated to creating awareness of the symptoms of Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS), supporting families and saving lives. SADS conditions are those that cause sudden death in young, healthy people, and often athletes. If diagnosed, these deaths can be prevented.

Three warning signs are:

  • Fainting when exercising or when startled
  • History of an unexplained death of a young family member
  • Consistent chest pain or pressure during exercise
