Heart being so important is also highly prone to diseases and problems. Cardiac arrest is a serious problem that is widely occurring. It happens when our heart stops pumping blood throughout our body.

The heart is known to have internal electrical system which controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. Problems can arise in our heart due to abnormal heart rhythms, the heartbeat can be too fast, too slow or it stops beating. Cardiac arrest is different from heart attack, where the heart continues to beat but the flow of blood to the heart is blocked. There can many causes for sudden cardiac arrest.
