Fifa extends research into cardiac arrest cases

INTERNATIONAL NEWS - FIFA is extending research into cardiac arrest cases involving footballers to learn about the condition which caused Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba to collapse during a match.

FIFA's chief medical officer, Jiri Dvorak, says the project will be advanced at FIFA's medical conference scheduled for May 23-24 in Budapest, Hungary.

Dvorak tells The Associated Press that "we have invited all national team doctors to establish a worldwide database for cases of sudden cardiac arrest."

Dvorak says the research "will lead to analysis of the risk factors."

FIFA also helped complete a recent study in Gabon of electrocardiogram testing in African players. Muamba was born in Zaire.

Muamba's condition is serious but stable in a London hospital.
