Scientists: Sex can't cause cardiac arrest

Fewer than one in five men who suffer cardiac arrest during sex survive — because their partners do not know CPR

Most of the victims of sex-induced heart stoppages were taking cardiovascular medications, an indication that these people had a history of heart problems - as opposed to dying during sex with no warning.

Anxious whether your heart is strong enough for sex?

Cardiac arrest is a situation in which anyone's heart can stop beating by getting a sudden shock.

"Sexual activity is just one variable in the whole big picture" of cardiac risks, but one that hasn't been studied in depth, Chugh added.

Limitations to the study included unknown information surrounding the frequency of sexual activity, so researchers could not determine relative risk compared to rest and physical activity.

According to the recent research done by American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017, on Sunday, it was founded that sex can rarely trigger cardiac arrest.

"Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when the electrical system to the heart malfunctions and suddenly becomes very irregular. and blood is not delivered to the body". Black men are more at risk than other populations, accounting for 19 percent of sex-related cardiac arrest.

Sex just isn't as strenuous as people believe. Stay tuned with us for more recent health updates like this.

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".

Survival often depends on how quickly patients receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), or chest compressions, which can help restore circulation and maintain blood flow to vital organs. This happened mostly because only one-third of those who collapsed during received CPR, which could have increased survival chances.

These new data may help inform discussions between healthcare providers and patients on the safety of sexual activity. Though almost 90 percent of those suffering cardiac arrest out of a hospital die, CPR can double or triple a person's chance of surviving, according the American Heart Association.

In fact, the team discovered that only 0.7 of all sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) cases were related to sexual activity.

Chugh said the results surprised him, but in reality sex isn't as aerobically challenging as some people believe.
