This review intends to analyze the current approach of identifying and preventing incidents of sudden cardiac death in young individuals. In this article, we will briefly define sudden cardiac death by discussing etiologies and disease occurrence followed by an exploration of current data registries, disease management, and preventative measures. Additionally, we provide recommendations for addressing gaps in preventative care and discuss the benefits of early screening interventions to reduce disease incidence and mortality.
