Preventing sudden cardiac arrest thanks to knowledge of your DNA

When a sudden cardiac arrest occurs the heart does not usually stop completely. The chambers of the heart vibrate chaotically and stop pumping blood around the body, which is life threatening. After as little as 4 to 6 minutes brain cells are irreparably damaged due to a lack of oxygen. The most common cause of a cardiac arrest is a heart attack triggered by a blockage in the coronary artery.

Sudden cardiac arrest and heredity

The risk of sudden cardiac arrest is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of sudden cardiac arrest.
