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
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.
