A heart attack describes the situation when an area of the heart does not get blood flow. It results in a portion of the heart muscle (left ventricle) dying. Later this can cause heart failure (weakening of the pump and associated shortness of breath and fatigue). It is also the cause for serious heart rhythm problems that can cause sudden death. A heart attack usually presents with chest pain. If in doubt, chew an aspirin and call 911. Sudden death is the scary term doctors use for a life-threatening arrhythmia. Over half of these are due to a prior heart attack, years ago, but can also occur in normal hearts. Sudden death has no warning and usually is associated with prompt fainting from the heart quivering or fibrillating, no longer able to pump blood to the body. To prevent death, CPR must be initiated immediately and 911 called to shock the heart back to life. See the dramatic video of a soccer player getting a shock preventing a sudden death episode, part of the dizziness, heart racing video on our home page. The SuddenLife ZioPatch screening helps to determine your risk of sudden cardiac death. http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=-TOAu OLjivc  (Jan 22, 2013 | post #1)
