Cardiac arrest is a possibly deadly heart attack. Stopping or bringing to a halt is what the term arrest means. The heart stops beating during cardiac arrest. It is sometimes referred to as sudden cardiac death.

Electrical impulses regulate the heartbeat. As the rhythm of these impulses changes, the heartbeat becomes erratic. This is often referred to as an arrhythmia. Some arrhythmias are soft, while others are rapid. Cardiac arrest happens when the heart's rhythm stops.

Electrical system problems in your heart can increase your risk of sudden cardiac death. These are referred to as main heart rhythm disorders. Other risk factors include:

Family histories of heart disease.

Histories of a previous heart attack.

Age over 45 for males, or over 55 for females.

Substances abuse.

Low potassium / magnesium.

Sedentary lifestyle.



High blood pressure.

Early symptoms of cardiac arrest are often seen as warning signs. Getting treated before your heart stops may mean the difference between life and death. Some of the symptoms include:

Feel fatigued or weak.

Shortness of breath.



Experience heart palpitations.

No pulse.

Loss of consciousness.

Not breathing / difficulty breathing.

Chest pains.


Cardiac arrest may not be accompanied by any signs until it happens. If the symptoms continue, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
