However, when a defibrillator is “immediately”
According to David Bruce, Vice President – AED Residential;
Bruce said “more than 95% of SCA victims die before reaching the hospital. The correlation between a heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest is very strong because most sudden cardiac arrests are usually preceded by one or more heart attacks; so because death happens so quickly, it is very important to access and use a defibrillator in less than 3 minutes”.
The heart is a person’s plumbing and an electrical system, pumping blood throughout the body an average of 72 times a minute. Most heart attacks are caused by a blockage of the arteries (a plumbing problem) versus a sudden cardiac arrest which causes the heart to beat abnormally or even stop beating (an electrical problem).
If the heart’s valves are blocked by a clot or otherwise...less blood is pumped through the valves and less life sustaining oxygen and other nutrients are distributed throughout the body. If the blood clot blocks the majority of the valve or totally blocks the flow of blood, a heart attack usually occurs.
Just like in plumbing; when blockage builds or hardens in portions of or closes the entire pipe; the plumber has to remove the blockage so water flows freely through the pipe.
The difference between a heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest is cardiac arrest shuts the heart down; creating an electrical malfunction known as “fibrillation”
Fibrillation can only be reversed with a “defibrillator”
