Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the leading cause of sports-related death.


Athletes with Sickle Cell trait have special considerations before and during their workout. During intense exercise, these athletes are at risk for a possibly life threatening condition called “exertional sickling.” The athlete’s red blood cells change from a disc shape to a rigid, sickle shape and can become trapped in arteries leading to muscles, blocking oxygen from getting to muscle and tissue. Exertional Sickling is a serious condition that can cause pain, weakness, and fatigue, and can be live threatening. Rest, hydration, and high flow oxygen are used to treat and prevent an exertional sickling crisis.
