SCA Package


Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is different from a Heart Attack. A heart attack blocks blood to the heart while a SCA STOPS the heart. It stops the heart thereby leading to death within minutes. This is caused by electrical disturbances of the heart where in the heart fails to function at a very fast heart rate. SCA kills approximately 4-5 million Indians every year. P. D. Hinduja Hospital is the only hospital which provided specialized tests like ECG with late potentials, T- wave Alternans and Heart Rate Variability for assessing the risks of SCA
