Does sex trigger heart attacks?

Only one in three men are given emergency treatment by their lover scientists say

For many men the idea of dying during or shortly after sex is considered among the best ways to go, but new research suggests it is actually quite rare.

Scientists have figured out how many people die of heart problems during sex, and they say certain groups are more at risk than others of going into sudden cardiac arrest while engaging in sexual activity.

The news is most welcome for patients with heart problems who aren't sure if sex could be risky, Chugh said. According to the study, the low bystander CPR rate accounted for less than 20 percent of patients who survived to hospital discharge.

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.

In total, the scientists identified 4,557 SCAs in Portland during the 13-year study period.

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

Anxious whether your heart health is strong enough for sex? "Over the years, we've had a fair bit of data on physical activity and how it's related to sudden cardiac arrest, but no one had looked specifically at sexual activity".

This differs from a heart attack, where blood flow to the heart is blocked.

But the study found that only a third of people who collapse during sex are likely to receive CPR from their partner.

The researchers noted that sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 300,000 people in the US every year and physical activity, particularly when the person is not accustomed to it, is linked to a higher risk of the condition.

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.

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.

Researchers said the findings may help inform discussions between doctors and patients on the safety of sexual activity and highlight the need to educate the public on the importance of CPR for sudden cardiac arrest.
