Sudden Death

Sudden cardiac death isn’t exactly a fun topic. It occurs when the heart unexpectedly stops beating, and death occurs within minutes. But, here’s some lighter news–researchers may have found who has the greatest risk of the condition. And this can help you learn how to prevent it.

People with high blood pressure, an increased heart rate, or a high body mass index had the highest risk.

Now don’t stop monitoring other factors like cholesterol, but follow a bigger plan for your health that includes watching your weight, resting heart rate, and blood pressure.

One way is to stick to, or start a regular exercise program. And see your doctor for regular check ups—don’t be the next surprise victim.
