Car­diac Ar­rest v/s Heart At­tack

Health & Nutrition - - HEALTH FLASH -

Al­though the terms are used in­ter­change­ably, car­diac ar­rest is dif­fer­ent from heart at­tack. How­ever, car­diac ar­rest can be caused by a heart at­tack. A heart at­tack hap­pens if a nar­row­ing or block­age in one of the coro­nary ar­ter­ies stops blood flow to that part of the heart. You will re­main con­scious and ex­pe­ri­ence symp­toms like nau­sea and chest pain that may spread to your chest and arm. Car­diac ar­rest is caused by an elec­tri­cal dis­tur­bance in the heart – it hap­pens sud­denly and you will likely lose con­scious­ness.
