New Delhi: Does cardiac arrest also occur due to fire? This question is also due to the fact that such a shocking case has come to light in America, where five people, including 4 children, suffered cardiac arrest due to a fire in an apartment and because of this they are hospitalized. A 28-year-old man and four children aged 1, 3, 12 and 14 were knocked unconscious after an apartment fire in the US state of Indiana, then hospitalized in critical condition after suffering cardiac arrest.
US Fire Battalion Chief Rita Reith said firefighters performed CPR on five victims and transported them to hospitals. This incident is from Tuesday. He said: “Within 10 minutes of entering the apartment after the fire, firefighters removed five victims from that apartment and all received CPR as they had lost consciousness due to a cardiac arrest”.
Cardiac arrest: a heart attack and sudden cardiac arrest are not the same, know the difference with a cardiologist
Officer Reith said the fire started Monday night at the apartment in the far east of town and was brought under control less than a minute after firefighters arrived. He said we don’t know what part of the apartment the fire started from. He said the victims were sleeping when the fire broke out. The 28-year-old is the father of a one-year-old and three-year-old daughter. The other two victims are boys.
Let us tell you that this incident is also important as the cases of cardiac arrest keep increasing in the country and around the world. It has been seen many times that some have lost their lives due to cardiac arrest while dancing, some while walking and some while working out in the gym. In fact, cardiac arrest occurs suddenly and a person loses his life within minutes. There are no visible symptoms in this case. It’s more dangerous than a heart attack. Before a heart attack, a person begins to experience severe pain in the chest. Apart from this, some symptoms are seen in heart attack, while in cardiac arrest, everything happens suddenly.
