Heart arrest is the condition in which the heart stops the supply of blood to all organs and stop beating eventually. In this case, the mode and time of human death rate are unexpected. The heart occurs some shortly or at the same time the symptoms appeared. When the electric system of heart goes down, it causes arrhythmias or heart start to have an irregular pattern of heartbeats. Ventricular fibrillation is the condition in which the arrhythmias cause sudden heart arrest. This state of heart is more dangerous than the heart attack because it left no time for human without treatment to survive and the death can occur within nearly 8 to 10 minutes.
