Sex can rarely trigger Cardiac Arrest: Recent Report

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