108°: Critical Response addresses the dangers of heat illness in high school sports. Through personal testimonies from families who have been affected by exertional heat stroke and interviews with coaches, certified athletic trainers, kinesiologists, and other medical professionals, 108°: Critical Response looks at the seriousness of heat illness and its underlying causes, as well as how to treat and prevent exertional heat illness. 

Featured in the film are three young victims of heat illness, only one of whom survived. Kendrick Fincher of Rogers and Tyler Davenport of Lamar died of heat stroke while practicing football in the summer months, while Will James of Little Rock received treatment and survived. Parents Rhonda Fincher, Mark and Tina Davenport, and Patti James all appear in the documentary. 

AETN produced 108°: Critical Response in response to Act 1214 of 2011. Sen. Keith Ingram, formerly a representative, of West Memphis and Rep. Mark Perry of Jacksonville sponsored the bill, and the Davenport family was instrumental in getting it passed. The act requires coaches to complete training in heat illness. 

108°: Critical Response received the prestigious 2015 NETA award for achievements as a Teacher Resource in Instructional Media.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest: When Seconds Count - Case Studies

Icon: 
Streaming icon

Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of sudden death among youth athletes. It primarily targets athletes whose sport causes an elevated heart rate (football, basketball, soccer, track, etc.). While some exhibit warning signs such as fatigue and shortness of breath, for many people the first indication of a heart problem is cardiac arrest. When this occurs, coaches, athletic trainers, and administrators need to know the course of action.

This media gallery includes three case studies from Sudden Cardiac Arrest: When Seconds Count. These case studies feature the stories of students from Cabot, Batesville, and Benton and how their heart conditions were discovered.

In 2019, Sudden Cardiac Arrest: When Seconds Count received a Bronze Telly Award for Non-Broadcast General Sports.
