The SADS UK (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) is a voluntary organization that exists to help prevent the early loss of life by raising awareness of heart conditions that can cause a sudden adult/arrhythmia death (SAD). It is also dedicated to improving the lives of those adversely impacted by cardiac arrhythmia. The trust promotes heart monitoring and donates heart-monitoring equipment to doctors’ surgeries for this purpose. SADS UK works to initiate government legislation (in the UK) to safeguard those who may be at risk from a fatal cardiac arrhythmia and raises awareness about the possible hereditary nature of cardiac conditions. SADS UK and its members across the UK raise funds to purchase 24-hour heart monitoring equipment and donate it to medical facilities throughout the UK. Awareness and heart monitoring are important since, in one-third of cases, there are no symptoms prior to a sudden adult/arrhythmic death.
