Imagine driving as you do every day, except this time, you suddenly feel your heartbeat racing and get a little light-headed. Before you can react, you blackout and lose control of your car. That is what would happen if you suffer a cardiac arrest behind the wheel. Scary isn’t it? It happened to a taxi driver in Singapore last month. This isn’t an isolated case. A similar incident happened to a prominent mayor in the United States as well. Unfortunately, cardiac arrest often happens without warning, and is usually only diagnosed after it has happened. When you have a cardiac arrest, your heart stops beating. That means your heart is not pumping blood to your brains and other organs. Immediate treatment is required. And when you have a cardiac arrest behind the wheel, the situation is made more dire. You might crash into a pole, tree or road divider, which would lower your survival rate further. Or you might crash into other vehicles, causing a huge accident pile-up. The potential consequences are troubling. Let’s change this and make the roads safer for you and other motorists. Make cardiac screening a part of your medical routine.
