Will the Euro Soccer Health Scare Change Player Safety Protocol?

The fans remember the highlights but the franchises remember the technology, data, and inventions that powered their season. Host Tyler Kern sits down with the innovators, leaders and founders that are taking sports into the future.


In the 43rd minute of Denmark’s opening game against Finland in the Euros, star player Christian Eriksen collapsed from a cardiac episode on the pitch, requiring life-saving CPR and an external defibrillator.

On this episode of Salary Capped, Host Tyler Kern talked with Dr. Matt Davis, Board Certified in Primary Care Sports Medicine and serves as team physician for SMU Athletics. Tyler and Dr. Davis talked about this event, how vital the trainer’s actions were, and what a trainer or physician must do.

“It generally happens in a hospital. You hate to see it happen on the field, but it’s happened in my career.” Dr. Matt Davis

It brought back some memories for Dr. Davis, and he noted that whenever you have to get involved in stuff like that, a lot of stuff runs through your mind. Most physicians and doctors, however, switch into professional mode and do what they have to do.

“This is something we’re trained to do,” Davis said. “It generally happens in a hospital. You hate to see it happen on the field, but it’s happened in my career. You kind of switch into professional mode, and there’s an algorithm you go through, so that’s what went through my head dealing with personal situations like that, though the folks on the field looked like they were doing what they were trained to do.”

It’s really no different if you were walking down the street, according to Dr. Davis. The first thing you have to do is assess the situation. In essential life support, there are algorithms that trainers must follow. First, you have to determine if a patient is breathing, conscious or has a pulse. Once you decide they don’t have a pulse, then you kick into CPR mode.
