Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This case and the review illustrate the induction of a sudden collapse of a football player secondary to a blow to his chest (commotio cordis) [CC]. The article argues that CC probably is under recognized in Europe and cautions that the mounting intensity and speed inherent in modern sports possibly increase the likeliness of CC in the future. If CC occurs, immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automatic external defibrillator should be used.
