Living in a poorer neighborhood might put people at greater risk for having a sudden cardiac arrest, a study finds.

Researchers analyzed data on sudden cardiac arrests over one year among 9,235 people in four U.S. cities and three in Canada. They also looked at median household incomes from census tracts to determine the relationship between the arrests and socioeconomic status.
