Abstract: Reviews accumulated data on sudden cardiac death in an effort to determine the consensus of scientific opinion on incidence, causes, predictive factors, and possibilities for prevention. Areas where future research should concentrate are also identified. The report surveys current knowledge on epidemiology, pathology, and pathogenesis, and mechanisms of the terminal event. Evidence implicating factors such as platelet-thrombus formation and sudden increases in myocardial oxygen demand is considered together with the possibility that certain types of autonomic neural activity can lead to the onset of lethal arrhythmias. Sections devoted to prediction and prevention point to the great need for more knowledge on the risk factors that are specific to sudden cardiac death, their predictive values and the possibilities of controlling them
