Cardiac Arrest

Overview: Cardiac arrest is the sudden stopping of the heart from beating. 

Cardiac arrest is a sudden stop to the heartbeat. It can occur in people who have been diagnosed with HCM.  It also occurs in some people who have never been diagnosed; in other words, sometimes it is the first symptom of HCM. (Many other heart diseases can also lead to cardiac arrest.)
