Fit and healthy young people die in the UK from sudden adult death syndrome (SADS). In individuals with an underlying heart condition, exercise can increase the risk of sudden death. Many individuals will have no warning of a problem and heart symptoms can be difficult to recognise, especially in those who are used to pushing themselves to extremes. Sportsmen and women engaging in high intensity sports are constantly putting their hearts through an extreme test. It is imperative to identify any hidden cardiac abnormalities in these people before and certainly during their chosen activity. There is growing evidence that identifying professional athletes with hitherto unknown cardiovascular disorders can prevent sudden death by targeted treatment or by temporary or permanent withdrawal from sports.
