The objective of InsideCardiacArrest.com is to provide you with information on Sudden Cardiac Arrest so that you can better understand its potential dangers to you, your family and your friends.Sudden Cardiac Arrest, or SCA, occurs when the lower chambers of the heart, called ventricles, stop beating normally and start quivering very quickly and chaotic. This is called ventricular fibrillation or VF. When the ventricles fibrillate, they do not contract normally, making it difficult to pump blood or oxygen to the body. Often, VF can become so erratic that it can result in SCA. If SCA is not corrected immediately via a shock from an external defibrillator or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), there is little chance of survival.
