A heart attack occurs when a blocked artery prevents oxygen rich blood from reaching a section of the heart. If you blocked artery is not reopened quickly, the part of the heart normally nourished by that artery begins to die.

Sudden cardiac arrest occurs suddenly and often without warning. It is triggered by an elecrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heart beat (Arrhythmia). With its pumping action disrupted, the heart cant pump blood to the brain, lungs and other organs. Then person loses consciousness.
