Title: Sudden death due to ischaemic heart disease in young Aboriginal sportsmen in the Northern Territory, 1982-1996

Abstract: 'Incidence of sudden cardiac death attributable to underlying IHD was extremely high among young NT Aboriginal Australian footballers. Prevention will best be achieved by funding culturally appropriate long-term strategies to reduce the incidence of IHD. However, in the short-term, community-controlled programs with education of athletes, heat-stress reduction strategies, and cardiovascular screening should reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac death in sport.'
