New Delhi: On Wednesday, Bollywood comedian and actor Razak Khan had passed away following a cardiac arrest. Family members rushed him to a hospital, but he couldn't be saved and doctors declared him brought dead.

Cardiac arrest is a sudden stop or an unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness. It is often confused with heart attack, but there is a difference. A cardiac arrest occurs when your heart stops pumping blood around your body.

Individuals who have been diagnosed with a heart condition are at increased risk for cardiac arrest.

Cardiac arrest happens suddenly, but sometimes it is preceded by certain symptoms such as-

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Blackouts

Knowing or recognising the warning signs could save your life or lives of your loved ones.

See a doctor promptly if you have frequent chest pain or any other symptoms that might bother you.
