What is commotio cordis?

Commotio cordis is an extremely rare condition that can occur when a hard object (such as a baseball or lacrosse ball) hits the chest directly over the heart at a specific time, disrupting the normal heart rhythm and leading to sudden cardiac arrest. Early treatment by CPR and an AED is critical for survival.
