Sudden cardiac arrest is the sudden, unexpected loss of heart function, breathing and consciousness. Sudden cardiac arrest usually results from an electrical disturbance in your heart that disrupts its pumping action, stopping blood flow to the rest of your body.

Sudden cardiac arrest is different from a heart attack, which occurs when blood flow to a portion of the heart is blocked. However, a heart attack can sometimes trigger an electrical disturbance that leads to sudden cardiac arrest.

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heart of the victim unexpectedly stops beating. Due to SCA blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs. If there are problems with the heart's electrical system then it will result in arrhythmias (ah-RITH-me-ahs) that is a case where there are irregular heartbeats. In this condition either the heart beats too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm. AED's are used to give electric shock in case of SCA.
