This article includes an excellent review of noncardiac sudden death.

Today, I review, link to, and excerpt from Sudden death: Causes, epidemiology, and associations in cardiology [PubMed Abstract] [Full-Text HTML] [Full-Text PDF]. Gönül Yekben M, Erbaş O. Sudden death: Causes, epidemiology, and associations in cardiology. D J Tx Sci 2023;8(1-2):41-47. doi: 10.5606/ dsufnjt.2023.17.

All that follows is from the above resource.


The largest challenge in modern cardiology is certainly sudden death (SD). Sudden death is described as an unanticipated, nontraumatic death that occurs within an hour of the development of new or worsening symptoms, within 24 hours of the last time the person was seen alive. Genetic, environmental, or acquired factors may all play a role in SD. In this review, we evaluated the factors related to both sudden cardiac death and sudden non-cardiac death and we explained the epidemiology of SD and the disorders that are associated with SD.
