Lisa Marie Presley died on January 12, 2023, after initially being hospitalized for a possible cardiac arrest, TMZ first reported.

The outlet reported that the 54-year-old’s pulse was initially restored. The entertainment site reported that Presley went into “full arrest” and was revived with epinephrine at her home before later dying at the hospital.

Epinephrine is used “in emergencies to treat very serious allergic reactions to insect stings/bites, foods, drugs, or other substances,” according to WebMD. “Epinephrine works quickly to improve breathing, stimulate the heart, raise a dropping blood pressure, reverse hives, and reduce swelling of the face, lips, and throat.”

Cardiac arrest “is when the heart stops beating suddenly. The lack of blood flow to the brain and other organs can cause a person to lose consciousness, become disabled or die if not treated immediately,” according to John Hopkins Medicine.

“In honor of it being National Grief Awareness Day , I wrote an essay about Grief which was posted today on @people. I thought I’d post it here in the hopes that anyone who needs to hear all of this it helps in some way. (link to story in Bio),” she wrote.

In that People Magazine essay, Presley wrote:

Death is part of life whether we like it or not — and so is grieving. There is so much to learn and understand on the subject, but here’s what I know so far: One is that grief does not stop or go away in any sense, a year, or years after the loss. Grief is something you will have to carry with you for the rest of your life, in spite of what certain people or our culture wants us to believe. You do not ‘get over it,’ you do not ‘move on,’ period.
