Center for Cardiac Arrest Prevention
The Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai
To discover and implement novel clinical tools for prediction and prevention of sudden cardiac arrest, thereby reducing the burden of sudden cardiac death in the community. Toward this goal, the Center will contribute to the scientific and medical community’s knowledge about phenotypic, genotypic, proteomic, and other predictors of sudden cardiac arrest. The Center will test prediction tools (e.g., risk scores, biomarker tests, etc.), to identify individuals who would benefit from further medical screening or access to medical treatment or devices to reduce their risk of sudden cardiac arrest. The Center will implement proven, effective prediction tools in the community and/or medical setting and measure the impact of early identification and treatment.
