Several factors can cause the electrical problems that lead to SCA. These factors include:

Coronary artery disease (CAD), which reduces blood flow to the heart muscle
Severe physical stress, which raises the risk for abnormal electrical activity in the heart
Inherited disorders that disrupt the heart's electrical activity
Structural changes in the heart that cause electrical signals to spread abnormally
