Cardiac Arrest

Cardiac arrest is a condition in which the blood suddenly stops circulating throughout the body. Heart failure is a common cause. Without continuous blood supply, body tissues are starved for the oxygen and nutrients they need to function, and may sustain damage. If circulation is not restored (e.g. by resuscitation), brain damage and death follow within a few minutes.
