Thousands of people in the world suffer a heart attack annually. Cardiac arrest is most likely to be experienced in obese people than those who are aren't obesed. These is due to the fact of level of fat accumulated along their arterial walls and muscles which may induce the blood vessels for easy movement. Many may survive but some may not. 
A heart attack is most often indicative of coronary heart disease, which is as a result of deterioration of the heart and circulatory system.

A “heart attack” (myocardial infarction) or cardiac arrest can be caused by either coronary thrombosis (an arterial blood clot) or blocked blood vessels which are supplied to the heart.

The occurrence of a heart attack differ from each other; to some, their maybe a sharp pain around the chest region and some may not experience this. 

Knowing fully well these signs of cardiac arrest may give you some tips to prevent it. 

1. Chest Pressure

This is the most common symptom of coronary distress. You may experience pressure, tightness, palpitations, or pain in the chest, upper abdomen, back, neck, jaw, arm, and/or shoulder which is an indications that blood supply has been limited.

2. Cold and Flu Symptoms 

Coughing and wheezing are your body’s ways of trying to get blood flowing.

A general feeling of “coming down with something”—especially in the presence of other symptoms—is a sign that your heart msybe sick.

Sudden onset of regular sweating for no reason is often a precursor to a heart attack. Dizziness is caused by lack of blood flow to the brain.

4. Severe Fatigue/Weakness 

Coronary disease doesn’t happen overnight and when the heart has gotten to the point at which it can’t take it anymore, blood flow is severely restricted and there is a sudden significant drop in energy levels which might caused general body weakness. 

You may experience difficulties in walking from pole to pole.  If this persists, please, consult your healthcare provider immediately.

Muscles aren’t getting the nourishment they need because they aren’t getting enough blood. You can tell if sudden sustained weakness—when every movement is a chore—is unusual.

5. Shortness of breath

The lungs can’t function properly if the heart isn’t. If you find you can’t seem to take a full breath, the problem may not be your breathing cavity but the restriction of blood from and to the heart.

 Regular intake of fresh vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, whole grains, and solid sources of healthy fats and proteins with extremely limited amounts of sugar and sodium will keep you healthy.

Processed and fast foods, a sedentary lifestyle, pharmaceuticals, and chronic stress will make you sick in one way or another—no doubt about it.

“Heart failure is a clinical syndrome that is predominantly caused by cardiovascular disorders such as coronary heart disease and hypertension. However, several classes of drugs may induce heart failure in patients without concurrent cardiovascular disease or may precipitate the occurrence of heart failure in patients with preexisting left ventricular impairment…[there is a] potential role in the occurrence of heart failure of cytostatics, immunomodulating drugs, antidepressants, calcium channel blocking agents, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antiarrhythmics, beta-adrenoceptor blocking agents, anesthetics and some miscellaneous agents. Drug-induced heart failure may play a role in only a minority of the patients presenting with heart failure. Nevertheless, drug-induced heart failure should be regarded as a potentially preventable cause of heart failure.
