It is impossible to diagnose since it happens suddenly and without warning. However, there are several tests that help determine if you are at risk of cardiac arrest. Your doctor will tell you which ones are necessary based on your medical history, family history, and symptoms, to assess your heart’s health.
When the heart stops, act immediately by providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or use a defibrillator until emergency services arrive.
Post-cardiac arrest care includes medication, an implantable device, and other procedures to keep your heart healthy.
