Sex triggered one in 100 fatal heart attacks in men, finds analysis

Just two of the 34 cardiac arrest patients were female, the findings showed.

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

One in every hundred fatal heart attacks in men was triggered by sex, according to a new paper exploring the impact of sexual exertion on cardiac arrest.

For a case of cardiac arrest to be considered related to sexual activity, however, it was required to have occurred either "during or within 1 hour of sexual intercourse".

"The findings are reassuring", for people with heart disease concerned that sex might be risky, said senior author Sumeet Chugh, a cardiologist at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles.

"Last day of " Tiger Zinda Hai " shoot and sharing with you first day of " Race 3 " picture in a bit", he captioned the image. With Jacqueline Fernandez and Salman Khan returning together we can surely expect fireworks on screen.

"Previously we would say the risk is probably low, but we don't know how low", Chugh noted. This figure was equal to 0.7% of all cases, and therefore allows to say that sexy load are not the cause of the deaths.

There are a lot of unknown variables that could have affected the data-drug use, frequency of sex-but all things considered sex-induced SCA is rare enough that most people shouldn't worry about it.

A senior author of the study tells that 10 percent or less then that had survived in case of cardiac arrest in the US. Most victims die. The medical condition is different from a heart attack, in which blood flow to the heart is cut off. People who have suffered heart attacks or have other heart problems are at increased risk of cardiac arrest. The majority of cases were men who had a previous history of heart diseases.

Almost 20 percent of the sex-related sudden cardiac arrest patients survived compared to just 12.9 percent of the non-sexual activity-related patients. They have also found that in only one in three cases does the overexerted amore receive what cardiologists term "bystander CPR", but what everyone else would term "the very least a considerate lover could do".

"These findings highlight the importance of continued efforts to educate the public on the importance of bystander CPR for SCA, irrespective of the circumstance", Chugh said in a press release.
