In brief: Death

There may be several symptoms that precede cardiac arrest.
These include chest pain, palpitations, fainting or near fainting spells or shortness of breath. Unfortunately many patients suffer cardiac arrest without any warning symptoms.

In brief: No heart function

Cardiac arrest means complete cessation of heart function.
This leads to complete stop of blood circulation and death if not rescued immediately. Basic life support (chest compressions) and proper use of defibrillator is key to survival while more sophisticated help awaited.
