Symptoms That May Be Noticed Before A Cardiac Arrest
Cardiac arrest is defined as the sudden suspension or cessation of the electrical action of the heart. It is possible for a person to go into cardiac arrest due to a number of different circumstances, some of which have to do with a family history of heart disease and some other issues, such as high blood pressure and the like.
On the other hand, there are situations in which the warning signs of an imminent cardiac arrest are so evident that the possibility of death can be considerably decreased.
As a result, we are going to have a look at some of the symptoms that may be detected prior to a sudden cardiac arrest in this post, which is in keeping with a publication that was found on the MayoClinic website.
What are some of the warning signs that one might have before going into cardiac arrest?
- A pain in the chest or an unexpected tightening of the chest that makes it difficult for you to take deep breaths. If you start experiencing these symptoms, especially if you are an older person, it is imperative that you get to the hospital as soon as possible.
- Weakness: Weakness that is out of the ordinary and having trouble doing tasks you would typically be able to do can both be signs of cardiac arrest. In the event of cardiac arrest, the heart abruptly stops performing its electrical function; consequently, it is imperative that you keep a close eye out for signs of weakness, particularly in someone who has a history of heart problems.
- A heartbeat that is very rapid or hammering. This is yet another indication that a cardiac arrest is about to occur. In the event that you become aware that your heart rate has unexpectedly increased along with the symptoms described above, the most responsible thing you can do for yourself is to seek medical attention as soon as you possibly can in order to prevent further complications.
