Cardiac Arrest

Cardiac arrest is a sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness, usually resulting from an electrical malfunction in your heart that disrupts its pumping action. It’s a serious medical emergency that must be treated immediately.

SYMPTOMS

Men are 2-3 times more likely to experience sudden cardiac arrest.

Cardiac Arrest often occurs with no warning. The first signs for both men and women are often:

  • Sudden collapse and loss of consciousness

  • No pulse

  • No breathing

Sometimes these symptoms may precede sudden cardiac arrest:

  • Fatigue

  • Fainting

  • Blackouts

  • Dizziness

  • Chest pain

  • Shortness of breath

  • Weakness

  • Palpitations

  • Vomiting
