Sex can rarely trigger Cardiac Arrest: Recent Report

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

Fewer than one in five men who suffer cardiac arrest during sex survive — because their partners do not know CPR

In August it was revealed that a heart attack during sex is eight times more likely to kill men. Previous studies have confirmed sex can trigger non-fatal cardiac events like heart attacks, but Chugh and colleagues designed their study to determine whether or not sexual activity is a risk factor for SCA in particular, since the condition accounts for 350,000 deaths in the US each year. "The researchers also noted that some cases of SCA after sexual activity may also involve medications, stimulants and alcohol use".

If you have a heart condition and are afraid that sex could trigger cardiac arrest, there's a reason to relax.

It is known that sexual activity may trigger non-fatal cardiac events such as myocardial infarction, but researchers in this study sought to determine if sexual activity is a potential trigger for SCA in the general population.

The examination was introduced at a meeting of the American Heart Association.

Sexual activity is rarely associated with sudden cardiac arrest, but it's men who are most at risk, and often they are not revived by their partner. "Heart attacks occur when there is a blockage in one or more of the arteries to the heart, preventing the heart from receiving enough oxygen-rich blood", notes WebMD. Stay tuned with us for more recent health updates like this. In the study, researchers take a look at the data of around 5,000 to 10,000 people and only five or six of them have a cardiac arrest. They had access to complete medical histories and autopsy records, as well as any information about what patients were doing when the cardiac arrest occurred.


Sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating, and usually occurs without warning.

"Sexual activity is just one variable in the whole big picture" of cardiac risks, but one that hasn't been studied in depth, Chugh added.

When sex preceded cardiac arrest, survival odds tended to be a bit better.

Almost 20 percent of the sex-related hearts attack patients survived, compared to just 12.9 percent of those whose heart attacks weren't linked to sex.

Only a third of those suffering from cardiac arrest from sex received potentially life-saving CPR-despite the likelihood that a partner was around to witness the arrest.
