There are many reasons why a cardiac arrest might occur, and most of the time it is nothing to do with negligent treatment. However, there can be times when a medical problem isn’t treated as it should be and a patient is allowed to deteriorate so much that the situation becomes critical, causing their heart to stop beating. Without the heart pumping blood and oxygen to the brain, the brain can be permanently damaged. If the patient survives, they may not be the same person as they were before.
