While it’s not yet clear exactly what Hamlin experienced, CBS News medical contributor Dr. David Agos said: Hamelin may have suffered from what is known as commotio cordisIt is an irregular heartbeat that occurs when a person receives a direct blow to the chest.

Agus described the condition as “heart confusion,” in which the heart muscle pumps erratically, and said the energy of the beat interfered with electrical signals in the heart, creating a new impulse known as ventricular fibrillation — a fast, irregular heartbeat that doesn’t pump blood to the brain. When that happens, Agus said the heart needs to be shocked again into a regular rhythm.

“That’s why defibrillators are on the sidelines of matches, to be able to use them to better shock the heart and get it back into a regular rhythm,” he said.

Agus said that every minute that blood flow to the brain is stopped increases the likelihood of serious consequences — including death.

“Every minute you wait increases your likelihood of dying by 10% – so the sooner you do that, the better,” he said.

There is a question as to whether Hamelin suffered any injury to his brain from his cardiac arrest. Agos said the faster they can start his heart, the more likely he is to recover quickly.

“People who don’t even know us are showing love and support and we are so grateful for that,” said Glenn, the player’s uncle. “I know these prayers help because he is definitely recovering…. God has a mission for him and that’s why he’s still here.”
