New research sheds light on young stroke deaths


Recent studies indicate that on average two to three young Australians under the age of 35 die each week as a result of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest.40% of these deaths are unexplained and in many cases the first sign of ill health is usually death.

These studies were led by Sydney based Cardiologist Professor Chris Semsarian from The University of Sydney. Professor Semsarian’s studies discovered that more than 65% of these deaths occurred during sleep time between 6pm and 6am and he says that the reasons for such a high occurrence of cardiac arrests during times of sleep and resting is yet to be determined.
