Commotio cordis (Latin, “agitation of the heart”) is an often lethal disruption of heart rhythm that occurs as a result of a blow to the area directly over the heart (the precordial region) at a critical time during the cycle of a heart beat, producing what is termed an R-on-T phenomenon that leads to the condition. It is a form of ventricular fibrillation (V-Fib). The survival rate is 58%, increased survival is likely caused by the prompt CPR, access to defibrillation and awareness.

Fortunately for Hamlin, medical personnel were readily available to assess and provide whatever interventions were available to give him the best chance of survival.
