"As most bystander CPR is provided by family members, lower response rates are likely due to a lack of CPR training and recognition of cardiac arrests," she said in a journal news release.
"An important factor in this was that people did not recognise that women who collapsed were having a cardiac arrest, leading to delays in calling the emergency services and delays in providing resuscitation treatment."
Researchers say that a possible reason why fewer women have shockable initial rhythm by the time the emergency services reach them may be because women tended to have a cardiac arrest when there were other people around to see it happen (for demographic reasons, there are more elderly women living on their own than men), and because the symptoms of a heart attack (one of the most common causes of cardiac arrest) may not be recognised so quickly in women.

We conducted a study involving major hospitals and ambulance services to assess the current scenario regarding sudden cardiac arrests in Karachi.
For both trauma and cardiac arrest, the major determinant of outcome is time to treatment, and the sooner effective cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is started, the better the chance of survival.
The main objectives of this study were: to describe the characteristics, course and outcomes of patients admitted to the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) following cardiac arrest; to compare the outcomes of patients following in-hospital cardiac arrest (IHCA) and OHCA, and to review factors associated with outcomes based on the Utstein-style reporting of cardiac arrest.
Alarmingly, around 270 UK children die every year after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest at school.
in blo A occurs heart stops completely person's heart usually carries on beating in a heart attack, unless they go into cardiac arrest which means the heart has stopped beating completely.
A change in the type of breathing tube paramedics use to resuscitate patients with sudden cardiac arrest can improve the odds of survival significantly and save thousands of lives, shows a study from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
Defibrillators can be used by anyone without any specialist training, and are vital to treating cardiac arrest - which is fatal within minutes.
