Although the aristocratic couple managed to deflect an assassination attempt earlier in the day, their chauffeur drove them into the jaws of death this time. While on their way to visit a hospital full of victims of a targeted bomb blast, their car took a wrong turn where one of the assassins happened to be. While the car was reversing, he took his chance and succeeded.

The Union States (the North) could have won the American Civil War in a shorter period of time had they procured newer rifles. The man responsible was James Wolfe Ripley, the Chief Ordnance, who constantly blocked the move to buy new guns.
An aide suggested they buy cheaper Enfield rifles from the British but he refused to turn to his old enemies for help. Sadly, the Confederacy (the south) procured these cheap British rifles and sent the Union on the losing side for the first few battles of the War.
Ripley was ousted soon after and the Union succeeded in winning the War.

We all know that the maiden voyage of the Titanic came to a tragic end when it hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean.
The man in charge of looking out for icebergs wasn't equipped with binoculars because it was locked up in a box and the keys hadn't made it aboard. Apparently the second officer on the ship was changed last minute. Charles Lightoller who was assigned as the new second officer was not given the keys in the handover, as the man he replaced had forgotten to get them out of his pocket.

In 1631, printers Robert Barker and Martin Lucas forgot to add the word 'not' to the seventh commandment of the Bible, leading it to be printed as "Thou shalt commit adultery" which made many people commit it openly in the 17th century.
When King Charles I found out, he took the business license away from the printers, fined their wages for a year and ordered all copies be burned. Today, only 11 copies of 'The Wicked Bible' remain.

In 1989, as the grip of the Socialist regime in East Germany loosened and the Soviet Union came under the leadership of Mikhail Gorbachov, there was a decision to ease travel restrictions between the East and West.
Gunter Schwabowski, a bureaucrat, was supposed to hold a press conference announcing the ease of travel restrictions. When asked by reporters when the new measures would come into effect, he went into a moment of doubt and muttered, "Immediately, right away."
This led to many people heading to the wall to enter West Berlin while others just decided to do away with the symbol of the oppressive regime. Today, only parts of the wall stand in the city of Berlin.

 

8. An error in interpretation caused the atomic bombing of Hiroshima

The Americans drafted the Potsdam declaration which demanded the unconditional surrender of Japan. Kantaro Suzuki, the Japanese premier, responded with the word, 'mokusatsu' which means to withhold from comment. However, the same word can also mean 'to contemptuously ignore' and this is where his interpreters got it wrong. It was sent across to the Americans and a week later, Hiroshima became the target of an attack that claimed many lives.

They chose a slow moving luxurious carriage which stood out and it soon became apparent to the people that it belonged to the royal couple.
The people of France were insulted that their monarch was trying to escape a nation embroiled in commotion. They just decided to do away with him and his cowardly kind.

Cardiac Arrest And Heart Attack Are Not The Same And Need To Be Treated Differently

Both disorders arise from problems with the heart but each with distinct risk factors, treatment options and outcomes. A Heart Attack is a “circulation” problem and Sudden Cardiac Arrest is an “electrical” problem. How many people know the difference between the two?

undefined

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is among the most common causes of death throughout the world. It is estimated that more than 3 million people die annually from SCA, with a survival rate of less than 1%. In fact, SCA claims one life every two minutes, taking more lives each year than breast cancer, lung cancer, and even AIDS.

SCA is a life-threatening condition wherein the heart’s electrical system is affected. During SCA, the heart stops beating and no blood is pumped in to the body. This could be compared to losing electricity in your house. The heart “electricity” must be turned back on, typically through electrical shock. Sudden cardiac arrest is different from a heart attack.

Heart attack, also known as myocardial infarction (MI) occurs when there is a blockage in one or more of the arteries to the heart, preventing oxygen-rich blood supply to some part of heart muscle. Heart attacks most often occur as a result of coronary artery disease (CAD) which is a result of plaque buildup in the arteries, which blocks blood flow and heightens the risk for heart attack. However, a heart attack can sometimes trigger an electrical disturbance that leads to sudden cardiac arrest.

While both cause serious problems and possible death, SCA often occurs abruptly and without warning. In fact, two-thirds of SCA deaths occur without any prior indications of heart disease, while heart attacks often have previous signs and symptoms.

Risk Factors

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)
•Previous heart attack - 75% of SCA cases are linked to a previous heart attack
•Coronary artery disease
•Family history – genetic reasons put even younger population at risk
•Cardiomyopathy
•Cardiac Failure

Heart Attack

undefined

•Age - People who are 65-years-old or older
•High blood pressure (hypertension)
•Smoking
•High serum cholesterol
•Family history of coronary disease
•Diabetes
•Stress and obesity

Symptoms

Sudden cardiac arrest symptoms are immediate and drastic which include sudden collapse, no pulse, no breathing and loss of consciousness.

Heart attack symptoms aren't always obvious; but they can be severe. One may experience a number of symptoms, like discomfort in the left side of chest/upper abdomen, shortness of breath from any type of exertion, cold sweat, vomiting/nausea.

Keep your heart healthy

Few lifestyle changes can go a long way in keeping your heart healthy; here is how.

undefined 

• Control your portion size while eating; don’t overload your plate
• Include more veggies & fruits in your diet
• Opt for whole grains in your meal as they are good source of fiber & nutrients
• Limit unhealthy fats and cholesterol
• Choose low-fat protein sources
• Reduce intake of sodium in your diet

A heart attack patient should be rushed to the hospital within an hour and required treatment should be delivered. A case of cardiac arrest is however more grave and fatal. Sudden cardiac arrest requires immediate action for survival. The most effective way to treat sudden cardiac arrest is defibrillation. The American Heart Association recommends defibrillation within 3 to 5 minutes of arrest, or sooner, for sudden cardiac arrests occurring outside the hospital.

An Emergency Care Unit inside your chest

undefined 

Defibrillators can be external, like those carried by emergency crews, or implanted in your body for long-term protection. An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a small device implanted under your skin which constantly monitors the rhythm of your heart, detects life threatening rhythms, and automatically delivers the most appropriate type of therapy when needed. It works like an emergency system inside your chest. If a rhythm that is too slow is detected it paces the heart as a pacemaker would. If it detects a very fast rhythm then low or high-energy shocks are sent to reset the heart to a normal rhythm.

If you have survived a heart attack, and your heart function has become weak, it may be good to check with your doctor if implanting an ICD will be suitable for you. Prevention is always better than cure.
