The Life After Cardiac Arrest podcast is hosted by survivor Paul Swindell and is conversations with people who's lives have been affected by a cardiac arrest, whether that be as a patient, partner, life saver or health professional. The podcast aims to give insight, information and hope to any others going through this life changing event.
A cardiac arrest is when someone's heart stops beating due to an electrical malfunction, it's different to a heart attack, which is a "plumbing" problem, although many cardiac arrests are caused by a heart attack.
Someone in cardiac arrest could be said to be clinically dead, and if no intervention is made they will unfortunately stay that way and die. In the UK only 8% survive this event, and with an estimated 250 taking place each day there is a growing number of survivors.
A thriving peer support community - Sudden Cardiac Arrest UK - has grown out of the need for more information and help for survivors and their families post discharge. The NHS and chain of survival are doing remarkable things in helping people survive but unfortunately the system hasn't yet caught up with the problems that survivors and their families are experiencing after this life changing event.

Alive and Kicking ❤️ ,

Life after cardiac arrest . Darren Nichols from flatline to finish line.

Another fantastic podcast from Paul Swindell .
Darren Nichols is a truly inspirational survivor of sudden cardiac arrest and this podcast highlights his emotional journey from the life changing cardiac arrest itself to successfully completing an iron man challenge in 2018.
Darren makes you realise that when you are given a second chance at life you should grab it with both hands and cherish every opportunity you are faced with.
