October is National Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month. Understanding the difference between heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest could help save lives.

One way to understand the difference between the two conditions is this: The heart attack victim is awake and the heart is beating. In contrast, the sudden cardiac arrest victim is not awake and the heart is not beating.

On the 26th of October, our Adult Cardiologist and Interventional Cardiologist are both holding a practical seminar that aims to tackle common misconception and demonstrate practical ways to help a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
