Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) happens when there is an electrical malfunction sending the heart into a state of “fibrillation”. The heart uses electrical impulses that regulate rhythm and cause the heart to beat. In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), the electrical malfunction causes the heart to enter a state of “fibrillation”, where it quivers, rather than beats and effectively stops pumping oxygenated blood to the brain or vital organs. The longer the heart quivers or has an irregular beat, the risk of damage to vital organs increases, and ultimately the patient loses consciousness and collapses.
