How heart-stopping is sex, really?

Men more at risk of rare heart attack after sex claims Study Fewer than one in five men who suffer cardiac arrest during sex survive — because their partners do not know CPR

Men suffered two-thirds of all sudden cardiac arrests but at a much higher rate when linked to sex - 32 out of the 34 cases.

Chugh said sexual activity as a sudden cardiac arrest trigger was studied primarily because it hadn't been looked at previously.

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

Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when an electrical impulse goes awry and the heart suddenly stops beating, halting blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. Sudden cardiac arrest is, more often than not, fatal, and it requires immediate specialized attention in order for the worst outcome to be prevented. Most already were on medicines for heart conditions, so their risk was elevated to start with. "The risk is very small". Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there. They think men might have a bigger overall risk, or maybe some other factors were involved which the study didn't account for.

It is known sex may trigger heart attacks. In a population of around 1 million individuals, the team identified 4,557 cases of cardiac arrest. Stay tuned with us for more recent health updates like this.

Trump is flying to the Philippines tomorrow, November 12 to attend the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Meetings in Manila.

Dr. Martha Gulati, chief of cardiology for the University of Arizona College of Medicine, said, "Although a lot of us think sex requires an intense level of activity, even in the most extreme situations it's not as intense as people imagine it". Such observations are a bit odd, since the cardiac arrest didn't occur when they were alone.

The safety of sex comes up from time to time with patients who've suffered a heart attack or have been diagnosed with a heart problem, Goldberg and Gulati said.

African Americans comprised 7.8 percent of the sudden cardiac arrests in the study, but nearly 19 percent of the sexual activity-related cardiac arrests.

He said it shows the need for people to be educated about how to administer CPR.

The study is scheduled to be presented Sunday at the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Anaheim, Calif.
