Does sex trigger heart attacks?

Only one in three men are given emergency treatment by their lover scientists say

Well, the study concludes that there are rare chances that cardiac arrest can trigger someone during sexual intercourse. "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". For women, the rate is around one in a thousand.

In fact, the team discovered that only 0.7 of all sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) cases were related to sexual activity. This low bystander CPR rate accounted for less than 20 per cent of patients who survived to hospital discharge, the researchers noted. And that overall stat includes many cases where no bystanders are around during an arrest to give CPR.

"I'm a little surprised at the really tiny number", said study senior researcher Dr. Sumeet Chugh, medical director of the Heart Rhythm Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Brophy clocked in three-tenths of a second ahead of his teammate at 30:49.9, while Donley posted a time of 30:50.2. Olaf College, took fourth in today's race with a team score of 114, and No. 29 University of St.

"These findings highlight the importance of continued efforts to educate the public on the importance of bystander CPR for SCA, irrespective of the circumstance", Chugh said in a press release. It provides ventilation and chest compressions (~100-120 per minute) that can partially restore the flow of oxygenated blood to the body and brain while the heart has stopped.

Sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly stops beating, and usually occurs without warning. Only 34 cases occurred during or within an hour of engaging in sex.

And while all the sex-triggered deaths had a partner present, CPR was only started in a third (32 per cent) of cases. For those doing more horizontal activities, 100 percent were in the presence of a bystander at the time of their arrest, but only 47 percent received bystander CPR.

Will introspect Chitrakoot by-polls loss: MP CM
The Congress' communication chief Randeep Surjewala said the victory signalled the change in political mood in the country. Mr Singh said the Chief Minister had made the Chitrakoot bypoll a prestige issue for himself.

The study wasn't a controlled experiment created to prove whether or how sex might contribute to the odds of experiencing or surviving sudden cardiac arrest.

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.

Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 14: Those anxious whether your heart health is strong enough for between-the-sheets sessions can now take a sigh of relief as according to a new study, heart-stopping sex is pretty uncommon.
