I feel this is a very important subject for all of us to know about.  The following articles are very informative on this subject and I urge you to read them.  Hugs, Teri
 
"Sudden cardiac death (SCD), also called cardiac arrest, is used to describe a situation in which the heart abruptly and without warning stops working, so no blood can be pumped to the rest of the body. It is responsible for half of all heart disease deaths."

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

(KRT) - Lie down, relax for a minute and take your pulse.

If it's more than 75 beats a minute and you're a man in your early 40s to early 50s, your life may end suddenly someday because of a heart-related cause.

An elevated resting heart rate was one of three relatively simple heart rate tests that seem to predict a man's future risk of sudden cardiac death, according to a study Thursday in the New England Journal of Medicine."
