Cardio-Respiratory Arrest

Could anyone please tell what cardio-respiratory arrest is? My father had suffered with alzheimers for 10 years, then he just stopped breathing. On the death certificate it said: cause of death-cardio-respiratory arrest. I have searched all over the web and cannot find detailed information on this. I need to know so i can understand and accept my fathers death.

Thank you in advance
Monica

I am sorry for your loss. Cardio-pulmonary arrest means that the heart has stopped beating and the breathing also stopped. It is a fairly common term used as a description of the cause of death. I hope this helps you to work through this sad time.
