Calcium is known to be one of the most important parts of our diet and if we do not take it a balanced manner, it can be responsible for many deficiencies in our bodies.

Ninety-nine percent of the total body calcium is in the bones and the remaining 1% is in the extracellular space.Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is fatal for over 90 percent of patients, and more than half of men and close to 70 percent of women who die of SCA have no clinical history of heart disease prior to this cardiac event.

It is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and kills more people than any single cancer. Many patients who suffer SCA would not be considered high risk under current guidelines.

Lead investigator Sumeet S. Chugh, MD, Pauline and Harold Price Chair in Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, Los Angeles, CA, said, ‘Our study found that serum calcium levels were lower in individuals who had a sudden cardiac arrest than in a control group’.

Patients with serum calcium in the lowest quartile (9.55 mg/dL), even after controlling for multiple patient characteristics including demographics, cardiovascular risk factors and comorbidities, and medication use.
