What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?
Sudden cardiac arrest is an electrical problem that causes the heart to stop beating normally. When this happens, the heart is unable to pump blood to the brain and other vital organs. If the person doesn’t receive help immediately they will die within minutes.
Every year there are around 30,000 out of hospital sudden cardiac arrests across the UK, but, sadly, less than 1 in 10 survive.
If you come across someone unconsciousness, unresponsiveness, and not breathing, or not breathing normally (gasping), they are likely to be in sudden cardiac arrest. Call 999 immediately and start CPR straight away.
By performing chest compressions and rescue breaths, you are taking over the role of their heart and lungs, pumping blood and oxygen to their vital organs.
It is imperative to perform CPR on a person in sudden cardiac arrest, however, CPR alone cannot restore the heart’s normal electrical function. Defibrillation within the first few minutes of an SCA is vital to give the patient the best chance of survival.
Having a defibrillator nearby can increase the chance of surviving by up to 90%.
