The study was based on data from the Oregon Sudden Unexpected Death Study, a collection of emergency medical service reports that contain detailed information on the causes and factors of cardiac arrest.

The researchers noted that sudden cardiac arrest kills more than 300,000 people in the USA every year and physical activity, particularly when the person is not accustomed to it, is linked to a higher risk of the condition.

The average age was 60.3 years for people who had a heart attack during sex, compared to 65.2 years for sudden cardiac arrest not linked to the activity. "Now we can tell them the risk is very low". However, taking this latest one at face value, the odds of going into cardiac arrest when making love are similar to those...

In September researchers in France revealed men who suffered cardiac arrest while having sex were four times more likely to die than other victims. They found just 34 cases linked to sexual activity. By far most were male and will probably be moderately aged, African-American and have a past filled with cardiovascular ailment.

Chugh said sexual activity as a sudden cardiac arrest trigger was studied primarily because it hadn't been looked at previously.

For the study, researchers analyzed data from 4,500 people who experienced sudden cardiac arrest, or the condition where the heart stops abruptly.

Sudden cardiac arrest kills about 350,000 people every year in the United States.

"Even though SCA during sexual activity was witnessed by a partner, bystander CPR was performed in only one-third of the cases", said Sumeet Chugh, Associate Director at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute.

Almost 20 percent of the sex-related hearts attack patients survived, compared to just 12.9 percent of those whose heart attacks weren't linked to sex.

"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. This happened mostly because only one-third of those who collapsed during received CPR, which could have increased survival chances.

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.
