    Is there any pain/suffering with Cardiac Arrest?

    This may seem like a stupid question, but I need to know.

    My mum died of it late last night.

    I am so sorry about your loss and I am sure she is in peace right now and went peacefully...most times, a massive heart attack is an immediate end...J
    Kindness in words creates confidence.
    Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.
    Kindness in giving creates love. (Laotzu)

    Words have the power to both destroy and heal.
    When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. (Buddha)

    If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them. (HH The Dalai Lama)

    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. (Buddha)

    You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. (Buddha)

    It depends on the cause. Cardiac arrest means the heart has stopped, which is the definition of death in many places. Many different causes are associated with it, from a heart attack to decapitation to asphyxiation.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I can't imagine how you must be feeling.

    I have done some research, and from what I can gather, it might have hurt a little before she went into Cardiac Arrest, but only like indigestion. When someone goes into Cardiac Arrest they are unconscious, so they will feel no pain, and die instantaneously. I hope this helps you feel a bit better. (Don't forget that many people confuse Cardiac Arrest with a heart attack, which does hurt, but it a completely different thing.)

    Take care of yourself, make sure you get enough sleep and eat properly. Wishing you lots of love and comfort at this terrible time.
