Do you know what the symptoms are and what to do when someone we know suffers from sudden cardiac arrest ? Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) kills 325,000 people a year – that’s nearly 900 per day! SCA usually occurs without any warning. And if an individual is not treated within 4 to 6 minutes from the onset of SCA, the results can be fatal! It is important to know the risk factors, warning signs and treatment in order to cope with it.
Inside Cardiac Arrest, presented by St. Jude Medical, provides information about the risk factors, warning signs, and treatment of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. There is also a detailed description on the implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). An ICD Implant is a device used to treat dangerously fast heart rates that occur in the lower chambers of the heart.
