Zurich: FIFA will be studying cardiac arrest cases involving football players to learn what caused Bolton's Fabrice Muamba to collapse during a match.
FIFA's chief medical officer says the project will be advanced at FIFA's medical conference on May 23-24 in Budapest, Hungary.
Jiri Dvorak told The Associated Press that all national team doctors have been invited. The hope is to establish a worldwide database for cases of sudden cardiac arrest. Dvorak says the research will lead to "analysis of the risk factors."
