Various components a multifactorial approach for prevention of sudden cardiac death would include:
Modifying coronary risk factors at community level and individual level
Community based training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation
Identifying and managing those with genetic predisposition for sudden cardiac death
Use of automatic external defibrillator in important public places
Implantable cardioverter defibrillators in those at high risk
Possibly the use of wearable defibrillator in those with potentially reversible risk of sudden cardiac death like in those who have recently recovered from a myocardial infarction.
