Cardiac arrest is a state in which the function of the heart that supplies blood to the whole body is stopped. This is an emergency that causes brain damage and causes death, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be performed.
What is the difference between cardiac arrest and heart attack?
Cardiac arrest is not like a heart attack. In a broad sense, cardiac arrest is one of the causes of cardiac arrest. Heart attack or myocardial infarction is a condition in which there is no blood flow in the heart. It usually occurs because the blood vessels are blocked and the cardiac function is stopped. Cardiac arrest means that the heart stops functioning. As the blood does not flow into the brain, the organs of the body also stop working.
What causes cardiac arrest?
The most common cause of cardiac arrest is arrhythmia or abnormal heartbeat. When the cardiac electrical system malfunctions, irregular heartbeat occurs and affects the normal functioning of the heart. Arrhythmia appears in the form of ventricular fibrillation with irregular tremor of the heart.

What are the symptoms of cardiac arrest?
The cardiac arrest occurs silently and there is no initial indication. When a cardiac arrest occurs, symptoms such as unconsciousness, no response, reduced pulse rate, respiratory arrest, and cardiac arrest appear.
What is cardiac arrest?
If a person survives a cardiac arrest, the doctor can remedy the cause of the cardiac arrest and prevent the recurrence. Methods for treating cardiac arrest include anti-vascular drug use, graft-versus-host heart transplantation, cardiovascular surgery, coronary artery bypass grafting, and radiolucent catheter ablation.

How to prevent cardiac arrest?
Preventing cardiac arrest involves changing lifestyles, administering drugs, and implanting implanted cardiac arrestors.
Methods of changing lifestyle include smoking cessation, weekly diet, balanced diet, and regular exercise. Bleeding inhibitors such as beta blockers, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, and amiodines control heart irregular heartbeats. A battery - powered cardiac arrest monitor monitors the heart rhythm and coordinates irregular heartbeats.

What is cardiac arrest?
One of the causes of a cardiac arrest is cardiac arrest. If a heart attack occurs, there is a grace period to prevent death. This grace period is four minutes, called the Golden Hour. A person who is suffering from a heart attack should be treated in a golden age. If you are treated to a golden age, you can expect full recovery.
However, after the Golden Hour, if you do not get treatment, you get irreparable damage. Within 90 minutes of bleeding, the heart begins to die. Every time a person gets untreated, the body gets irreversible damage.
