This happens when the heart stops beatingand it not necessarily permanent. An individual’s brain can stay alive for about 4-6 minutes afterbreathing and heartbeat have stopped. This isn’t much time, but it is our “Window of Survival.” Ifappropriate medical care is initiated within the first minutes of cardiac arrest, the individual has a
much greater chance of survival. Many individuals have survived because of early cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation.
