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

Heart-stopping sex is rare, but when it occurs it usually happens to a man, says one of the first large studies to examine sudden cardiac arrest during or just after sex.

"For the last two decades we've been working on how to predict and prevent sudden cardiac arrest". Fear of post-sex heart failure has been bolstered by plot lines on TV shows like Mad Men, but in reality, "the risk is very small", senior author Dr. Sumeet Chugh tells NBC.

He and other researchers wanted to know how sex affected the odds of cardiac arrest, a different problem that's more often fatal.

But it can't give a more detailed risk analysis on how likely sex is to trigger a heart attack compared with resting or other activity without knowing how frequently these people were having sex.

Recently the Network spread a myth that people with disorders of the heart can't do physical exertion, including sexual activity. Later the scientist asked that whether sex can be called risky for the heart patients and the answer come as to be on hold.

Even so, we should not worry too much.

Sex generally is safe for most heart patients, unless they are unable to maintain even low levels of activity or have symptoms that keep them from doing daily chores like making the bed or cleaning the house, the heart experts noted.

There's one silver lining for people who have a cardiac arrest from sex - they're nearly twice as likely to survive, Chugh 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.

About 19 percent of the patients in sex-related cardiac arrest cases survived their ordeal, compared with an average survival rate of around 10 percent nationwide, he said.

Though all patients included in the study had their sudden cardiac arrest witnessed by another person, less than a third received CPR.

The research was presented at a meeting of the American Heart Association.
