ADVOCATING FOR LAWS THAT PREVENT

SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST IN YOUTH

Through its nationwide network, Parent Heart Watch encourages its members to affect public policy at local and state levels so that communities take action to protect children from the devastating effects of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. We keep a watchlist on legislation that affects:

  • AEDs in Schools
  • Cardiac Emergency Response Plans
  • Cardiac Risk Assessment in Youth Health Care
  • CPR Training in Schools
  • Electrocardiogram Testing For Students
  • SCA Prevention Training in Youth Sports


It is vital that we all are aware of the laws, pending legislation and gaps in sudden cardiac arrest prevention that govern our communities.
