/ar·rest/ (ah-rest´) cessation or stoppage, as of a function or a disease process.
cardiac arrest  sudden cessation of the pumping function of the heart with disappearance of arterial blood pressure, connoting either ventricular fibrillation or ventricular standstill.
developmental arrest  a temporary or permanent cessation of development.
epiphyseal arrest  premature interruption of longitudinal growth of bone by fusion of the epiphysis and diaphysis.
maturation arrest  interruption of the process of development, as of blood cells, before the final stage is reached.
sinus arrest  a pause in the normal cardiac rhythm due to a momentary failure of the sinus node to initiate an impulse, lasting for an interval that is not an exact multiple of the normal cardiac cycle.

Etymology: L, ad, restare, to withstand
to inhibit, restrain, or stop, as to arrest the course of a disease. See also cardiac arrest.
(1) Amiodarone for Resuscitation in Refractory Sustained Tachycardia. A trial evaluating the benefit, if any, of amiodarone on attempted resuscitation after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest with ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia
Conclusion Amiodarone patients were more likely to survive to hospital admission than placebo patients; amiodarone patients were more hypotensive and/or bradycardic

ARREST

Cardiology A clinical trial–AngioRad Radiation for Restenosis–to evaluate the safety of US Surgical's AngioRad gamma system in ↓ restenosis in native vessels after angioplasty with/without stents. See Angiorad.

arrest

Cessation of normal action, especially of the heart.

arrest

sudden cessation or stoppage.

cardiac arrest
sudden and often unexpected stoppage of effective heart action. Either the periodic impulses which trigger the coordinated heart muscle contractions cease or ventricular fibrillation or flutter occurs in which the individual muscle fibers have a rapid irregular twitching.
epiphyseal arrest
premature arrest of the longitudinal growth of bone due to fusion of the epiphysis and diaphysis.
maturation arrest
interruption of the process of development, as of blood cells, before the final stage is reached.
sinoatrial arrest
a disturbance in cardiac conduction in which the sinoatrial node intermittently fails to generate an impulse. There are no P waves or PQRS-T complexes for at least twice the normal R-R interval. If the pauses are long enough, junctional or ventricular escape complexes may occur. Occurs most commonly in brachycephalic dogs, causing only minor clinical signs.

Patient discussion about arrest

Q. WHAT IS CARDIAC ARREST why do people have IT?

A. cardiac arrest is when the heart stops pumping blood. stops working. it can happen in a few cases:
1) it doesn't get oxygen and there for a part of it dies and make the whole heart stopping- heart attack.
2) in electric shock it may cause the electric pulse that generate movement in the heart to stop.
3)from harsh septic shock.
4) from any shock actually :).
