The generally accepted temporal definition is bracketed by a period of up to 1 hour between. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart stops beating, abruptly and without warning. If this happens, blood Sudden Cardiac Death book flowing to the brain and other vital organs.

In addition, if the heartbeat is not restored with an electrical shock immediately, death can occur within minutes. Cardiac arrest is a sudden loss of blood flow resulting from the failure of the heart to pump effectively.
