Invite a spectator to take your pulse. To ensure there is nothing restricting your pulse, allow them to check under your arms and examine your arms completely. They will agree there are no devices on you.

Ask them to find your pulse. When they have it, ask them to snap their fingers along with it... They will keep track of your pulse rate. Tell them no matter what happens to you, make sure they report ANY changes in your pulse rate.

You close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply and slowly... ask them if your pulse is getting stronger. They will agree it's beating harder. Then close your eyes and ask them if they feel the rate changing... they will say it's getting slower... and slower... and eventually only 1 beat every few seconds, and then it speeds back up to normal and goes faster and faster. Then the performer turns his attention inward and has a self-induced attack! This is "cardiac arrest"! The performer takes a deep breath and holds it and his pulse stops... after a few seconds it eases back to normal.

Comes complete with 7 page booklet of detailed instructions and routine.

(This review is for Cardiac by Andrew Gerard)
I have a little doubt to make a review for this effect
IS SO POWERFUL , that i really wanna keep it for myself.

If you are a magician , you like card and coin tricks and just wanna learn the secret, dont waste your time, because you need a lot of practice in this one.
If you are a seriuous student of Mentalism, with this effect you can build a reputation.
I have a reputation for my coin bend routine, but i know that in a little time i will be known as the guy that stops his heart.
The method is simple,but as i said, you need to practice the words, the timing ,the psychology and the handling of reactions.

If you read this review after all this....

No only you can stop your beat, you can control it as you wanna . No gimmicks, no preparation. Just a pure experience for your participants.

The routine is beatifully constructed. You show how you can acelerate and slow your beat. After that you claim that even sometimes a self induced cardiac arrest can happen to you , you pulse starts to quickly change and BUM ! , Stops!

You are dead.

4-5 seconds ... and you can comeback

If you wanna have a LIFETIME routine. Get it.
