ABOUT THE STUDY

The ORCCA study aims to monitor clinical outcomes in athletes diagnosed with cardiac conditions at risk for sudden death.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of sudden death in competitive athletes during sports and exercise. However, the natural history and risk profile of cardiac disorders among athletes is incompletely understood.

The collection of more complete outcomes data will improve management of athletes diagnosed with a cardiac condition, inform safe sports participation, and delineate the downstream impact of pre-participation cardiovascular screening programs. This study will examine the shared decision-making process and monitor cardiovascular outcomes, sports and physical activity levels, mental health, and quality of life in athletes with cardiac conditions.

The ORCCA study is supported by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) and the American Heart Association (AHA).
