Drowning And Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Do you know that you can drown while swimming and due to drowning you can get a sudden cardiac arrest? Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in water occurs when there is an electrical malfunction of the heart. Our heart usually malfunctions when it stops beating. When a person drowns, the lactic acid in the body increases and oxygen in the bloodstream starts to decrease which directly affects the heart rate and that’s how cardiac arrest occurs. There is not a particular age for it, it can happen to anyone, anywhere.


If you’re going to swim in a pool, you should ask the relevant authorities about the presence of AED and any reliable person who knows CPR as well. Your family and your safety come first.
