Sudden cardiac arrest is an unexpected event and can quickly lead to death and the largest in the world. According to data from the American Heart Association (AHA) in 2002, every two minutes, there is one person who died from Sudden Cardiac arrest. In the United States alone, each year there are more than 250,000 deaths caused by sudden Cardiac arrest.
Causes of Sudden Cardiac arrest can be divided into two broadly namely coronary heart attack and cardiac arrest electrical rhythm. Coronary heart attacks occur up to 75 percent of cases of sudden Cardiac arrest.
Coronary heart attacks occur because there is a blockage in the blood vessels of the heart. Generally blockage occurs due to a buildup of plaque in blood vessels. Blockage will make the blood flow choked and can not flow through the heart. This is what makes the heart stop working.
"The heart does not receive enough oxygen and nutrients should be obtained from blood," cardiac arrest electrical rhythm disturbances caused by the heart's electrical rhythm. Cardiac arrest is much less than the prevalence of coronary heart disease and its causes were varied.
Cause of cardiac arrest can be caused by electric rhythm neurological dysfunction, brain, and some non-cardiac causes another. "On the electrical rhythm of cardiac arrest, cardiac anatomy good, but it can be stopped suddenly.
