Congratulations, Sex Probably Won't Give You a Heart Attack

A USA study of sudden cardiac arrests found only a third of cases that occurred during sex received "bystander CPR". Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when the heart suddenly stops beating. He and other researchers wanted to know how sex affected the odds of cardiac arrest, a different problem that's more often fatal.

There are a lot of unknown variables that could have affected the data-drug use, frequency of sex-but all things considered sex-induced SCA is rare enough that most people shouldn't worry about it. It's possible, he said, that men have more underlying risks or that some took risky medications or supplements that did not show up in the study.

The researchers reviewed the medical records of adults from a Northwestern community in the United States between 2002 and 2015.

One in 100 cases of cardiac arrest in men was associated with sexual activity, compared with one in 1000 cases in women.

For a case of cardiac arrest to be considered related to sexual activity, however, it was required to have occurred either "during or within 1 hour of sexual intercourse". But 94% of those victims had a history of heart disease, NBC News reports.

Perhaps even more surprisingly, people who experienced SEX-SCA were typically younger than expected, at approximately 60 years.

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. "Now we can tell them the risk is very low".

Another finding from the new study: Just one-third of people who collapsed during or after sexual intercourse received CPR "despite the fact that you are usually guaranteed a bystander", in such cases, Chugh said.

Still, while these results are reassuring, Dr. Aro and colleagues highlight the necessity of educating the general population about the importance of CPR, as well as knowing how to perform this procedure correctly.
