Why does a sudden cardiac arrest happen?

University Hospitals Dorset has recently run one of its popular Understanding Health talks on 'Understanding sudden cardiac arrest – why does it happen?'

Dr Chris Critoph, consultant cardiologist who specialises in heart failure, cardiac devices and inherited heart disease, talked about some of the causes of cardiac arrests, explaining what happens and early warning signs that people can look out for. He also covered treatment and the lifesaving devices like pacemakers and ICDs that can be used to help prevent future events.

The free event ran via Microsoft Teams in July. To watch a recording of the event, please click here.
