Disability Claims for Sudden Cardiac Arrest

As the name suggests, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly stops functioning and can lead to sudden cardiac death. This condition is the United States’s leading cause of natural death, resulting in the death of some 325,000 adults annually. Mostly, SCA affects adults aged between 35 and 50 years, and men are twice as vulnerable as women. It is rare in children, affecting only 1 to 2 out of every 100,000 children annually.

Doctors associate sudden cardiac deaths with undiagnosed heart diseases. Congenital birth disabilities account for most younger people who die of this condition. Conversely, coronary artery disease accounts for most adult deaths. So, who is more vulnerable to this condition? The following persons or groups of people are more susceptible to this disease: heart disease patients with enlarged hearts and other cardiovascular defects, hypertension patients, obese persons, smokers, patients with previous heart attacks, people with substance abuse problems, and those with excess magnesium and potassium deficiencies.

Although over half of the disease’s cases have no previous clinical signs, this condition has varied symptoms. Leading clinical signs include dizziness, racing heartbeats, sudden collapse, loss of consciousness, difficulty breathing, and the heart stops beating. This disease has no specific cure.

However, doctors can prescribe medicines to help patients with chronic cardiac conditions. Some of the medications doctors administer are beta-blockers and calcium-channel blockers. Patients with excess cholesterol and coronary artery disease might receive statin drugs. Many people must rest and take time away from work due to sudden cardiac arrest.
