Sex rarely causes hearts to stop, finds new research

Men more at risk of rare heart attack after sex claims Study

Does Sex Trigger Sudden Cardiac Arrest? Only Rarely

Your next romp with a paramour may blow your mind, but it's unlikely to stop your heart, according to research presented this weekend at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017 in Anaheim, California.

While it was rare for someone to experience cardiac arrest during sex, Chugh pointed out it's still important for a partner to know what to do if it does happen.

Men made up the vast majority of the sex-triggered deaths, 32 out of 34, and this means in men, one per cent of all sudden heart attack deaths was sex related, compared with 0.1 per cent in women.

"These findings highlight the importance of continued efforts to educate the public on the importance of bystander CPR for sudden cardiac arrest, irrespective of the circumstance", said lead author Sumeet Chugh.

It also found that sudden fatal heart attacks among people with a pre-existing heart condition were not significantly more likely to be triggered by sex.

In the Cedars-Sinai study, more than 4,500 cases since 2002 were examined based on on data from the Oregon Sudden Unexpected Death Study. That's lower than the overall rate of CPR for those who suffer cardiac arrest out of a hospital, which is 46 percent.

Odds of CPR were better, however, in sex-related cases.

Recently the Network spread a myth that people with disorders of the heart can't do physical exertion, including sexual activity. "Now we can tell them the risk is very low".

The study also showed that patients whose heart attacks were linked to sexual activity had higher rates of ventricular fibrillation - a serious cardiac rhythm disturbance - and tachycardia, a higher-than-normal heart rate.

Of the cardiac patients playing sports or exercising at the time of their arrest, almost all (95 percent) were in the presence of bystanders at the time and 80 percent received CPR from bystanders before getting to the hospital.

It is known sex may trigger heart attacks.

Compared with others who had sudden cardiac arrest, people with an arrest associated with sexual intercourse were more likely to be male (94%).

With China's provocative actions in the South China Sea, Roque said the issue is expected to be discussed by the two leaders. Duterte said earlier in the week that he planned to ask China to make clear its intentions in the South China Sea.

"By now, there is recognition from a lot of research that if someone is around when you have your cardiac arrest and provides CPR while the ambulance is getting there, it can be potentially lifesaving", Chugh said.
