Do you know the difference between a heart attack and a cardiac arrest?
A heart attack occurs when the arteries carrying oxygen-rich blood are blocked by fatty deposits, while a cardiac arrest happens when the heart’s ‘electrical system’ malfunctions and stops blood flow from the heart.
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone without warning. Early identification can help to save your life. Make an appointment for a cardiac screening today.
