The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association Shoots Straight for the Heart
Date:2/3/2009

  • Take a CPR class. Some organizations offer training for free. There are also online programs, and the American Heart Association offers a CPR Anytime Kit that allows you and your family members to learn CPR at home with a small manikin and an instructional DVD.
  • Does your local school, church or community center have an automated external defibrillator (AED)? If not, make a contribution to help finance the purchase, or better yet, get a group of friends to jointly fund the lifesaving device.
  • Schedule a doctor's appointment. Has your Valentine been putting off a physical exam or ignored the advice to get a stress test? Make that appointment, take the day off from work, take them to lunch, and then go with them to the doctor. Perhaps you can make an appointment for yourself too.

SCA is different than a heart attack. A heart attack is essentially a plumbing problem (such as a blocked artery) and SCA is an electrical issue of the heart. SCA occurs when the heart's electrical system malfunctions and the heart goes into a rapid heart beat and then stops beating. Most deaths from sudden cardiac arrest occur with little or no warning. Risk factors include a previous heart attack, coronary artery disease, diabetes, obesity and family medical history.

SCAA is the nation's largest organization singularly devoted to SCA prevention through better public awareness, better emergency response and better access to health care for patients at risk.
