Scientists have created an avatar nurse, which is a simulated character that interacts with individuals to help them identify the symptoms of heart attack and call for help. Death rates can be halved by getting the patients to the hospital quicker.

A cardiac arrest is different than a heart attack in the sense that a heart attack occurs due to a blockage in one of the arteries while a cardiac arrest is the result of abnormal heart rhythm. Not all heart attacks result in a cardiac arrest.
