Abstract

Blunt chest impact-induced cardiac arrest on the athletic field (commotio cordis) is not necessarily fatal. The 3 survivors reported here emphasize the importance of recognizing this syndrome so that emergency resuscitative measures are more likely to be implemented promptly, and such catastrophes avoided.
