How can I reduce my risk of sudden cardiac death?
About 50% of cardiac disease deaths are caused when the heart suddenly stops beating. If a patient has an irregular heart beat, the doctor can lower the risk of sudden cardiac death by implanting a defibrillator, an internal device that will re-establish a normal heart rhythm if necessary. A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that certain lifestyle do’s and don’ts can also help lower your risk.
- If you smoke, stop; if you don’t smoke, don’t start.
- Keeping a healthy weight
- Engaging in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise daily
- Eating a daily diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, fish, and healthy fats and limiting your intake of saturated food products and alcohol.
Who is at risk for sudden cardiac arrest?
Scripps Health answered
Most people at increased risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) have related conditions, such as coronary artery disease, heart attack or a family history of SCA. Other risk factors may include unexplained fainting or light-headedness, chest pain, shortness of breath or heart palpitations. However, people in seemingly excellent health, including professional athletes, have died from SCA.
