Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Did you know that a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is when the heart stops beating suddenly and unexpectedly due to a malfunction in the hearts electrical system. Unlike a heart attack the victim will lose consciousness instantly and unless an immediate chain of survival is in place the victim will most likely not survive.

In the UK approximately 250 people a day experience an SCA, with less than 1 an hour surviving. 12-15 young people die each week from an SCA. This means approximately 20 people a day join our unique club and have their world turned upside down.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK is a Peer to Peer Support group – to find our more about them please click on the button below.
