Heart Attack occurs when blood supply to the heart is severely reduced or cut off. Lack of oxygen can damage the heart and begin to die.

Cardiac Arrest occurs when the heart suddenly stops beating, preventing blood and oxygen from getting to vital organs.

Stroke happens when the blood flow to the brain is interrupted or severely limited cutting off oxygen and nutrients from brain tissue.
Brain cells starts dying minutes after a stroke.
