Researchers have found that a large number of people pass on in their sleep due to heart attacks. A heart attack occurs when the blood flow to the heart is cut off or slowed to a large extent.
Arrhythmias, a common cause of death while sleeping, is associated with the heart’s electrical activity. Cardiac blocks that disrupt the electrical pattern cause heart failure and death.
Strokes frequently occur during sleep, which can result in sudden death. The heart significantly influences other systems that rely on its blood circulation capacity.
Congestive heart failure also plays a role in sudden death. It can also eventually result in total heart failure.
Pulmonary disease is often long-lasting, and its effects may show slowly. Progression of this disease can result in death. At the most basic level, the lungs are in charge of obtaining oxygen and carbon dioxide from the air.
