PACED – Parents Advocating for Cardiac Education

PACED (Parents Advocating for Cardiac Education) is group of individuals and families affected by Inherited Heart Rhythm Disorders (IHRD) advocating for greater awareness and identification of these diseases. The challenge in reducing the toll that these diseases take is that in most cases the patient is otherwise healthy making identifying at risk patients difficult. For roughly half of the young people that die from an IHRD related cardiac arrest the first indicator of the disease is death. Of the other half many present with warning signs in the weeks or months prior to their death. Read More

A good starting point for determining if your child may be affected is to complete both a Patient and Family History. Read More
