  • Sudden Cardiac Arrest

    Cardiac arrest is often confused with a heart attack or myocardial infarction, which is a loss of blood to the heart tissue. Cardiac arrest usually occurs without warning. Warning signs of an impending cardiac arrest due to heart disease are:

    • Squeezing discomfort or pain in the chest, or behind the breastbone, lasting more than 10 minutes
    • Pain spreading up to the neck, out to the shoulders or arms
    • Sweating
    • Shortness of breath
    • The person may feel sick in the stomach

    If someone experiences these warning signs, seek medical assistance urgently and get an ambulance. If a cardiac arrest does occur, the person will need CPR from a bystander until the ambulance arrives with a defibrillators.
