Leah's Life was Saved by her Husband

October 28, 2022

SADS UK are pleased that Lydia's daughter Leah’s life was saved by the CPR given to her immediately by her husband Jordan together with the support of the paramedics at the scene. Leah suffered her cardiac arrest last November and spent five days at Heath Hospital, Cardiff where she was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome.

Brugada syndrome is a rare, hereditary condition that affects the electrical impulses that pass through the heart – there is a chance Leahs daughter Olivia, 2, may have the condition. It's good to know that Leah now has an internal defibrillator implanted to react if her heart should go into an abnormal or dangerous rhythm.
