Do You Have Cardiac Symptoms?

Posted by Administrator on 11/1/2013 to The Importance of AEDs
Cardiac symptoms are said to be reported four weeks to an hour before a man goes into cardiac arrest. The American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Dallas tells USA Today, “Symptoms include chest pain, dizziness, and shortness of breath, faintness or heart palpitations.”

Cardiac arrest is sometimes mistaken with a heart attack. Cardiac arrest is when the heart fails and stops. If someone goes into cardiac arrest, immediate CPR or the use of a defibrillator can help save the person’s life.

Around 360,000 cases of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest occurrences happen each year in the U.S. Approximately 53% of people who suffered from cardiac arrest had prior symptoms. It is important to not ignore any of these symptoms in order to prevent cardiac arrest. 

Cardiologist Sumeet Chugh tells USA Today, "An average of 90% of people who suffer from cardiac arrest die from it. To prevent unnecessary death it is advised a family member should be knowledgeable in CPR. Having an automated external defibrillator (AED) is significant to have when someone is suffering from cardiac arrest."
