While most causes of sudden cardiac death relate to congenital or acquired cardiovascular disease, an exception is commotio cordis, in which the heart is structurally normal but a potentially fatal loss of rhythm occurs because of the accident of timing of a blow to the chest. Its fatality rate is about 65% even with prompt CPR and defibrillation, and more than 80% without.

    Cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to pump effectively. Signs include loss of consciousness and abnormal or absent breathing. Some individuals may experience chest pain, shortness of breath, or nausea before cardiac arrest. If not treated within minutes, it typically leads to death.

Interaction between infection and exercise with special reference to myocarditis and the increased frequency of sudden deaths among young Swedish orienteers During the periodan increasing number of sudden unexpected cardiac deaths (SUCD) occurred in young, Swedish, male elite orienteers.

Myocarditis was the most common diagnosis in the 16 victims, and in 4 cases was also associated with fatty infiltration mimicking arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). Chlamydia pneumoniae was implicated as the cause of myocarditis and sudden death in 16 young Swedish elite orienteers (mean age, 25 years; 15 males/1 female) who died unexpectedly.

Subsequently, the investigation was extended to five other Swedish orienteers, identifying C pneumoniae in one, Bartonella quintana in two, and Bartonella henselae. While a large number of cardiac conditions have been associatedwith sudden death during exercise, the most common cause of death inWesternized communities is coronary artery disease.

As in the cyclists, the deaths were considered “cardiac,” and a popular hypothesis was a transmissible myocarditis, ascribed first to Chlamydia and then to Bartonella.

Their supporting evidence, however, is not compelling and does not dissuade skeptics, including me, from speculating that a .Sudden death in young athletes usually occurs on the athletic field and is related to physical activity, in the absence of prior symptoms.
