It would be ok: I saw a doctor accidentally get shocked during a code. He didn't take his hand off the bed. He collapsed suddenly but recovered in a couple of seconds. Defibrillation works by stopping all electrical activity in the heart. This allows the heart to reset. We depend on the natural tendency of the heart to beat to restart it. That's why if there is no rhythm at all we don't shock- we do CPR and meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends....: If the heart attack is small, you may survive it relatively intact. But, if the heart attack involved a large portion of your heart, you may be left with significant impairment, if you survive at all. You need to decide if you would want resuscitation in the event your heart stops. It is possible to have a sudden cardiac arrest meaning your heart stops. See your doctor for options.

Depends. No set no#: Cardiac arrest occurs when d heart has trouble pumping blood 4 itself, or when electrical problems cause a malfunction. The faster the heart beats, the less time the heart has to fill blood 4 itself (the heart rests b/w beats). If there r blockages or narrowing in its arteries, or if it is weakened (from electrolyte imbalance) then it will stop beating at a lower cut-off. Theoret max is 220-age. ...Read more
