Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is a leading cause of death among persons in their youth and early middle-age. To prevent SCD it is crucial to identify persons at high-risk of SCD. Knowledge of symptoms and medical contact prior to SCD could potentially aid in the identification of high-risk persons in the general population who would benefit from further investigation. This review aims to summarize the current knowledge of symptoms and healthcare contact preceding SCD in persons aged 1-49 years, and to explore how the symptoms differ according to SCD cause and age of the deceased. There was a high frequency of both cardiac and non-specific symptoms prior to SCD. Additionally, many SCD victims contacted the healthcare system prior to death on the basis of their symptoms and only a few were diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. This information underlines that young persons reporting potential cardiac symptoms should also be thoroughly examined. Furthermore, such symptoms could be used in combination with other easily accessible information in non-invasive prediction models aiming at identifying persons at high risk of SCD that would benefit from further investigation and possibly treatment.
