NEW - July 1, 2022:
Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act
The Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act is a new law as of July 1, 2022. Known informally as “Dominic’s Law,” the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act is named for Dominic Murray, a 17-year-old who collapsed and died on a Farmingdale State College basketball court in 2009. The goal of Dominic’s Law is to promote safe interscholastic athletics and to prevent incidents of SCA in student-athletes.
This law requires schools, students, and parents/guardians to have information on sudden cardiac arrest risks, signs, and symptoms. SCA requires any student who displays signs or symptoms of sudden cardiac arrest to be immediately removed from athletic activities. They will not be able to resume until they have been evaluated by and received signed authorization from a licensed physician.
SCA in at-risk students can be triggered by athletic activities. To decrease any chance of SCA in a student, an Interval Health History for Athletics must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian before each sports season unless a physical examination has been conducted within 30 days before the start of the season. The form will be made available this summer to families of students participating in fall athletics. This form has questions to help identify changes since the last physical examination or health history was completed. School personnel may require a student with health or history changes to see a healthcare provider before participating in athletics.
Additional Information about Sudden Cardiac Arrest:
What is SCA?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is an emergency that happens when the heart suddenly stops working. SCA can cause death if not treated immediately, and even with treatment, death may occur. Immediate treatment is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). All public schools must have a staff member trained in the use of CPR and AED in school and at all school athletic events.
How common is SCA in youth?
Sudden cardiac arrest in children and youth is rare. The incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) on the playing field is 0.61 in 100,000.
Who is at risk for SCA?
Preventing SCA before it happens is the best way to save a life. Both your family health history and your child’s personal history must be told to healthcare providers to help them know if your child is at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. Ask your child if they are having any of the symptoms listed below and tell a healthcare provider. Know your family history and tell a healthcare provider of any risk factors listed below.
