WHAT IS COMMOTIO CORDIS?
Commotio Cordis (Latin: “agitation of the heart”) is an often lethal disruption of the heart beat caused by a blow to the chest over the region of the heart by a blunt object (i.e. baseball, lacrosse ball, hockey puck, or fist) at a critical time during the heart’s cycle, causing cardiac arrest.
