Difference between heart attack and cardiac arrest?
Wondering about the difference between a heart attack and a cardiac arrest? Follow the responses in this Ask Expert page to understand the difference between the two heart problems.
I have seen the people use the words heart attack and cardiac arrest often. I thought that both heart attack and cardiac arrest are same but my fried told me that heart attack is caused due to blood flow problem and cardiac arrest is due to heart pumping problem. However I am still unclear about the difference. Can anybody here explain?
