TOKYO, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Asian champions Japan are No. 1 in the rankings for the region's 2014 World Cup qualifiers first-round draw taking place on March 30, the Asian Football Confederation announced on its official website Tuesday.

The rankings are based on the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa as well as the Asian qualifying rounds for the main tournament. The final number of entries will be confirmed later by world soccer's governing body FIFA, the AFC said.

Japan, who reached the second round of the World Cup for the first time on foreign soil last summer, were followed in second place by South Korea, who also made the knockout phase in South Africa.

Australia and DPR Korea, the two other Asian teams which played in the 2010 World Cup, and Bahrain round off the top five.

Kuala Lumpur: The prevention and management of cardiac emergencies on the football field and stadium will be the topic of one of the main lectures at the 4th AFC Conference 2011 on Science and Football Medicine.

The lecture will be delivered by Prof. Efraim Kramer of South Africa, a FIFA Football Medicine Instructor and Head of the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.

The conference will be held here in the Malaysian capital on March 18-20, 2011.

According to the synopsis of his presentation, the scene of a young and fit player who suddenly collapses and dies on the field during a match is a tragic event frequently screened and publicised worldwide and a broad spectrum of cardiac and non-cardiac causes has been implicated.

Therefore, regular pre-competition medical assessments (PCMA) for players are recommended as a preventive measure while immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation are the recommended treatments for sudden cardiac arrests.

High success rates can be achieved if these are initiated promptly, preferably within seconds of the cardiac arrest and trained medical responders must be allowed to respond to the emergency.

Cardiac arrests among spectators will also be covered during the lecture, the synopsis says.

More than 400 most respected and powerful member delegates are expected to meet at the conference that will feature 12 world-renowned figures and other experts in sports medicine and health sciences.
