Heart Attack Is Not Cardiac Arrest!
Cardiac arrest happens when your heart stops beating due to some kind of malfunction or when something is blocking blood flow to your heart.
A heart attack can sometimes cause cardiac arrest:
A heart attack is when the coronary arteries are blocked with plaque or a blood clot and a part of the heart starts to atrophy and die. Your heart requires a steady supply of oxygen-rich blood to keep going. Your coronary arteries are the highway that delivers that blood.
Cardiac Arrest is when you are having a heart attack, your heart keeps beating even if the blood flow is disrupted. The heart stops beating entirely, and the individual relapse into unconsciousness and can die within minutes if you don’t get treatment.
