A leading cause of death in young athletes, SCA rarely shows symptoms in those impacted prior to an attack. However, with quick and proper use, AED units have been found to increase SCA survival rates by up to 50 percent. The donated AED units will be on hand at AYFA football games as an additional safety precaution for young football players taking the field.
