    Number 18. A cardiac arrest isn’t always an electrical failure. There is a condition called PEA (pulse less electrical activity) where the electrical system is firing but there is no pulse.

It can also be a purely mechanical failure such as when a myocardial infarction (heart attack) causes a hole in the heart muscle
