More About Cardiac Arrest
Cardiac arrest occurs when there’s a disruption in the rhythm of your heartbeat which causes it to stop beating. When the heart stops beating, it isn’t able to send blood to the brain and other organs. Cardiac arrest is a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment. Regular checkups and living a heart-healthy lifestyle, including exercising and eating a balanced diet, can help prevent cardiac arrest.
