Sex rarely causes hearts to stop, says new study

The majority of cases were men with a previous history of cardiovascular disease.

Anxious whether your heart health is strong enough for sex?

It is known sex may trigger heart attacks. That means that sex is linked to only about one in a hundred cases of cardiac arrest in men.

The data, recorded from paramedic notes as part of a long-running study on sudden unexpected deaths found more than half of these happened (55 per cent) during sex, while the rest occurred within 15 minutes.

Just 34 cases occurred during or within one hour of sexual intercourse.

Jokes aside, the risk of sudden cardiac arrest and death is a concern for people with heart disease - including during sex - but the chances are "extremely low", according to senior study author Sumeet Chugh, MD, medical director of the Heart Rhythm Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles. All reported cases were based on emergency medical service reports containing detailed information regarding the cause of the cardiac arrest.

The doctors behind the paper stressed the importance of public education on CPR "irrespective of circumstance", after their analysis found just one third of these cases saw resuscitation attempted despite their partner being present. Bystanders performed chest compressions on 27 percent of the non sexual activity patients, while 32 percent of the patients who had a sudden cardiac arrest during or immediately after sex received CPR.

Dr Chugh stated: "These discoveries feature the significance of proceeded with endeavors to instruct people in general on the significance of onlooker CPR for sudden heart failure, regardless of the condition". It will also be published simultaneously in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
