How to Manage Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?

As sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is an emergency, the affected person can be treated with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). CPR can save the life of a person by giving chest compressions to replace the heart’s pumping action. It keeps blood and oxygen circulation smooth. After that, a defibrillator may be used when available. The defibrillator is a device that sends electric shocks to the heart. This electric shock can restore a normal rhythm of the heart that has stopped beating. These steps have to be done within minutes of SCA. CPR and defibrillation rescue a person from SCA.
