What is SADS and what has it got to do with Sport? - Dr Ffion Davies, Consultant in A&E, University Hospitals of Leicester, who will introduce the session on underlying heart conditions that affect seemingly fit and healthy young people playing sport, including recognising warning signs and being better prepared, should someone suffer a cardiac arrest.
Ask the Specialist - Question & Answer Session by Dr Aidan Bolger, Consultant Cardiologist, University Hospitals of Leicester who will open the floor up to take questions on what this means in practice, to people who enjoy or teach sport, including why screening for these conditions is still so controversial. The session also offers the opportunity to learn how to do CPR and use an AED automated external defibrillator. The lecture is aimed at sports coaches, PE teachers, anyone responsible for the welfare of young people in sports clubs and members of the public.
