Does sex trigger heart attacks?

In most cases they were middle-aged, African American and had a history of heart disease, according to the report. 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.

While sudden cardiac arrest, or SCA, results in more than 300,000 deaths each year in the United States, fewer than 1 percent were linked with sexual activity.

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

The new findings are part of a 16-year study of heart risk factors involving about a million people living in and around Portland. However, taking this latest one at face value, the odds of going into cardiac arrest when making love are similar to those...

This was slightly higher than the 27 per cent of non-sex triggered heart attacks, the difference was not statistically significant and those individuals might have died 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. "Over the years, we've had a fair bit of data on physical activity and how it's related to sudden cardiac arrest, but no one had looked specifically at sexual activity".

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

In any case, sex is an uncommon trigger for sudden heart failure.

The researchers noted that sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 300,000 people in the US every year and physical activity, particularly when the person is not accustomed to it, is linked to a higher risk of the condition. The researchers determined that the low bystander CPR rate accounted for the less than 20 percent of patients who survived to hospital discharge.

Your next romp with a paramour may blow your mind, but it's unlikely to stop your heart, according to research presented this weekend at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017 in Anaheim, California. 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.
