Early symptoms of cardiac arrest that can lead to severe medical conditions

In our fast-paced life, we get busy with our work, and keep running with time, ignoring all the symptoms that could lead to severe health issues. However, knowing all the early symptoms of cardiac arrest at the beginning stage can help in avoiding major medical conditions.

Early symptoms of cardiac arrest include:

  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Unexplained wheezing
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeats
  • Heart palpitations

(Note – If you have a family history of heart diseases, please focus on ensuring good  heart health and lowering the risk factors by knowing all the early symptoms of cardiac arrest)

Apart from the early symptoms of cardiac arrest, listed below are a few other signs that everyone should be careful about because it doesn’t come with a warning at times:

  • Sudden collapse
  • No pulse
  • No breathing
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Chest discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness
  • Fast-beating, fluttering or pounding heart (palpitations)

(Note – Please recognize the early symptoms of cardiac arrest, to avoid sudden stopping of your heart)               

When the heart stops, the lack of oxygen in blood can cause death or permanent brain damage within minutes. So what are the things to take care of if you want to avoid your body from experiencing early symptoms of cardiac arrest?

  • Ensure heart-healthy eating
  • Aim for a healthy weight
  • Manage stress effectively
  • Ensure regular physical activity
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoid a sedentary lifestyle
  • Keep a check on your blood pressure
  • Keep a check on history of a previous heart attack

  • Berries
  • Avocados
  • Fatty Fish and Fish Oil

We hope this helped you with the information you needed to take care of your heart! Please note that even after detecting early symptoms of cardiac arrest you have to see a doctor who will guide you well.
