Don't worry, sex is unlikely to trigger cardiac arrest
13 November 2017, 05:40 | Melissa Porter
'Heart-stopping' sex is rare, but it does happen -- and mostly to men
Sudden cardiac arrest is, more often than not, fatal, and it requires immediate specialized attention in order for the worst outcome to be prevented.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when the heart suddenly stops beating.
Chugh said sexual activity as a sudden cardiac arrest trigger was studied primarily because it hadn't been looked at previously.
But new research on which a number of prestigious institutions - including Helsinki University Hospital in Finland and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA - collaborated has revealed that it is unlikely that cardiac arrest will occur during sexual intercourse.
Just 34 cases occurred during or within one hour of sexual intercourse.
Dr Sumeet Chugh, senior study author and associate director of the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute said: "Even though SCA during sexual activity was witnessed by a partner, bystander CPR was performed in only one-third of the cases". We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. 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.
But overall, sex was linked to only 1 percent of all cardiac arrests that occurred in men. The demographic most likely to suffer SCA from sex appeared to be middle-aged, African-American males with a history of heart disease, probably already taking heart medication.
Goldberg suggested that "doctors really should be discussing this information with their patients to allay their fears they may have after a cardiac diagnosis, that most people return safely to having sexual activity". Just 12% of patients in the study survived.
Individuals who had cardiac arrest during or straight after sex only received cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from their partner in a third of all cases, despite the fact that it can be life-saving.
"This highlights the importance of continued efforts to educate the public on the importance of CPR, no matter the circumstance", Chugh said.
