Prior to digging further into the subject, lets understand what actually Cardiac arrest is?

According to Dr. Sudhir Pillai, a Consultant in Cardiology at P.D. Hinduja Hospital in Mahim, Mumbai, a blockage or blood clot forming within the arteries that limits blood flow to the heart is known as a heart attack or a myocardial infarction.
The coronary arteries may become narrowed as a result of plaque formation, which is a result of fatty deposits, including cholesterol, and can unexpectedly obstruct blood flow to the heart, resulting in a heart attack. Having said that, the majority of heart attacks can be fatal, necessitating prompt medical attention whenever they happen.

Without prior notice, sudden cardiac arrest causes the heart to stop beating. The irregular heartbeats brought on by an electrical fault that prevents the heart from pumping blood to the body cause it to happen. If a person with sudden cardiac arrest is not helped within the first 6 minutes, they will die suddenly. A cardiac arrhythmia is a variation of the normal heartbeat, which ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute and can be either too slow (bradycardia) or too fast (tachycardia). A fatal arrhythmia can occur in people who have a sudden increase in heart rate or who are genetically predisposed to heart conditions.
