According to Dr Atul Mathur of Fortis Hospital, Delhi, the most common cause of cardiac arrest is a heart attack, where specific blockage of the coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart may get blocked due to acute clot formation and underlying cholesterol plaque.
“It is possible that sometimes cholesterol plaque does not necessarily narrow the artery severely, but rather 20-30-40 percent it can rupture due to extreme stress or unusual exercise. Thus, the rupturing of this plaque will lead to blood formation in the body leading to a heart attack. And this heart attack has a 50 per cent chance of causing cardiac arrest in any person,” Dr Mathur was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
