Cardiac arrest usually results from an electrical disturbance in the heart. It's not the same as a heart attack.
The main symptom is loss of consciousness and unresponsiveness.
This medical emergency needs immediate CPR or use of a defibrillator. Hospital care includes drugs, an implantable device, or other procedures.
