According to the latest study, around 97% of people have been exposed to the risk of sudden cardiac arrest due to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This particular finding has been published in plus one zonal journal by the university hospital of Sweden. This finding has confirmed the expanding cardiac screening process, which is practically beyond the competitive capacity of different hospitals. 

The most surprising fact about this process is the involvement of the young population, which are not subjected to any screaming but are exposed to the risk of developing cardiac arrest at the same point. As a part of the study, only all the young people died and could have cardiac arrest as well had they got they detected. The opposite of the relationship between the occurrence of cardiac arrest and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy has also been discovered.

Purpose of the study

This kind of study aimed to analyze all the factors that the people who already had the symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and Cardiac Arrest exhibited between the years 2000 and 2022 in Sweden and different parts of the country. The stakeholders of this particular experiment aimed to record the specials’ clinical symptoms and medical history by analyzing the family history and other ECG findings. 

Every possible attempt was needed to collect the data from the national and autopsy reports. The sample of the study only consisted of 38 such identified cases. 71% of the world can present the possible symptoms of cardiac arrest just before death. 69% of the population did not receive suitable medical care, so only 30% of the people could be saved. Surprisingly, out of all the people who died due to this deadly combination, only 50% had a family history.
