Australia Launches a Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) Registry

By Sean Adl-Tabatabai


Australia has launched a Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) registry in response to large numbers of young, healthy people dropping dead.

According to reports, doctors at Melbourne’s Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute created the country’s first SADS registry which they hope to roll out across the country in order to gather more information about this sudden death phenomenon.

A spokeswoman confirmed the registry has “approximately 750 cases per year of people aged under 50 in Victoria suddenly having their heart stop (a cardiac arrest).” reports: The kicker: “Of these, approximately 100 young people per year will have no cause found even after extensive investigations such as a full autopsy (the SADS phenomenon).”
