Bronny James, the 18-year-old son of NBA star LeBron James, experienced a heart attἀck. The incoming USC freshman is no longer in intensive care and is in stable health, but the reason for the incident has not yet been identified by medical professionals.
They are certain that he did not suffer a heart attἀck. This is due to the fact that cardiac arrest and heart attἀcks are not synonymous, despite what many people believe. Here is everything that is known so far about Bronny James’s health…
The Atlanta-based Centers for Dἰsease Control and Prevention describes cardiac arrest as the sudden, unexpected cessation of heartbeat and blood flow. A malfunction in the electricity is the cause of this. Loss of consciousness can occur when the heart stops beating and stops pumping blood throughout the body, depriving the rest of oxygen.
Sports Illustrated reported When James lost consciousness:
“Received initial treatment from team medical staff before he was loaded in an ambulance and taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center at ‘Code 3, lights and sirens,’”
According to the CDC, more than 356,000 Americans have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest each year. Without quick attention, 60 to 80 percent of them pἀss away before reaching the hospital.
Contrarily, a heart attἀck occurs when a portion of the heart muscle itself does not receive enough blood. It is not an electrical issue; it is a circulation one. Every 40 seconds, or roughly 805,000 individuals annually, a heart attἀck occurs in the United States, making it much more common than cardiac arrest.
“A slow onset of symptoms persisting from hours to days: chest pain, light-headedness and shortness of breath are all warning signs. This can lead to cardiac arrest, but not always.”

Cardiac Arrest Not Uncommon Among Younger Athletes
According to Dr. Jonathan Drezner, a sports cardiologist at the University of Washington Medical Center, cardiac arrest is more common in athletes than it is in others Bronny James’ age. Drezner said:
“Bronny represents the single highest athlete risk group”
Drezner’s research shows that young, Black male NCAA basketball players had a 1 in 2,000 chance of suffering a cardiac arrest each year. The likelihood is 1 in 5,000 if the player is white. James’ cardiac arrest would certainly be thoroughly investigated by medical professionals, Drezner informed the news outlet. The teen’s treatment will be based on those findings.
LeBron James also shared a video of his son playing at home. Bronny James is seen in the little movie playing the piano for a brief period of time before grinning and rising. In the video caption, the NBA great thanked his youngster.
