2 Substances That Can Cause Cardiac Arrest And Early Death In Young People

Cardiac Arrest is one of the leading causes of sudden death amongst older people. Due to the fact that most ailing old people suffer cardiac arrest, many have come to the conclusion that young people don't suffer cardiac arrest, but there are certain chemicals or substances that can make a person suffer cardiac arrest and in this piece we are going to examine them.

If you are young and you constantly take these substances, you are putting yourself at risk of suffering a cardiac arrest. As a young man or woman who doesn't want to have anything to do with cardaic arrest or dying suddenly, I will suggest you read this article till the very end. Just sit tight and learn something new from this piece whilst enjoying yourself.

What Are The Substances That Can Cause Cardiac Arrest And Early Death In Young People?

1. Methamphetamine and Cocaine; these two illicit drugs are quite common especially the former in today's society. This is because cocaine and methamphetamine act like adrenaline in the body by providing it with a rush of pleasure thus putting the electrical system of the heart in a deadly overdrive. It is for this reason that people who constantly take either methamphetamine otherwise referred to as ice or Mkpuru Mmiri or cocaine are at a much higher risk of suffering cardiac arrest.

2. Depressant Drugs like Narcotics and pain medications like meperidine (demerol) and alcohol can all depress brain function thus raising a person's risk of having heart related problems like cardiac arrest whereby the electrical system of the heart sudden ceases.

So, for your own good, there is need to cut down on such substances if you really want to live long and avert sudden cardiac arrest. Thanks.
