new research finds sudden cardiac arrest, long thought to a deadly conditi that strikes without warning, isn't so sudden. the study shows many patients missed or even ignore the early warning signs, sometimes weeks earlier. the survival rate for sudden cardiac arrest is less than , but with early detection and medical intervention, that rate jumps to 32%. our dr. tara narula is a cardiologist at lennoxill hospital here new york. >> good morning. >> 350,000 people die because of this so what does the study find.
7:51 am
cardiac arrest is r rlly dismal. as you mentioned, less than 10% survival. most people die within 10 minutes. it strikes people in the prime of their life, around the age of 65. even when they recover, many are left with neurological damage, hypoxic brain injury. in this study researchers found there may be key windows of intervention prior to the actual arrest. they looked at 839 patients who had susuen cardiac arrest and then got information about the four weeks preceding the arrest and in fact found about 51% had at least one symptom prior to the cardiac arrest. in addition, 80% had symptoms at least an hour or greater before the arrest and over 90% had symptoms within the 24 hours preceding the arrest. unfortunately, only 12% sought medical help with a doctor for their symptoms and only 19% called ems when they had symptoms. >>8so what are those syuptoms? >> the symptoms they identified primarily were chest painn about 46%, shortness of breath
7:52 am

have risk factors for coronary heart disease which causes 70% of cardiac arrest. so h hh blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes. >> and are those the same with each gender, men and women? >> men are two to three times in general to have sudden cardiaia arrest arrest. but both men and women reported the same frequency of having symptoms. men tended to have more chest pain and women tended to have more shortness of breath. >> listen to you body. >> absolutely. and those peoplpl who call ems in the study were 32% likely to survive as oppose to 6% who did not call ems, so early intervention is key. >> really important knowledge. all right, dr. tara narula, thank you so much. a breakthrough in iceland could transform the world's green energy industry. next we find out how one engineer's idea uld help other cocotries deliver cleanannd cheaeapower. you're watching "cbs this morning." ...from the lindt master chocolatiers. a hard outerhell with a smooth center.
