What is the difference between heart attack/ cardiac arrest/stroke?

  • Heart Attack: A heart attack occurs when blood flow to the heart is blocked.
  • Cardiac Arrest: Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating, leading to death.
  • Stroke: A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients.
