Absence of Breathing

Individuals experiencing cardiac arrest will stop breathing or gasp for air irregularly.

Unresponsiveness: The person will not respond to any external stimuli, such as touch or sound.

No Pulse: During cardiac arrest, the person's pulse cannot be detected as the heart has stopped beating effectively.

Pale or Bluish Skin: The skin may appear pale or bluish due to lack of oxygen circulation in the body.

Chest Pain: Although cardiac arrest itself may not cause pain, some individuals may experience chest discomfort leading up to the event.

Fatigue and Weakness: In the days leading to cardiac arrest, some people may feel excessively tired and weak.

Prior Heart Conditions: People with a history of heart problems, such as coronary artery disease or arrhythmias, are at higher risk of experiencing cardiac arrest.

Remember, if you suspect someone is having a cardiac arrest, it is crucial to seek emergency medical assistance immediately, as every second counts in saving a life.
