But the study found that only a third of people who collapse during sex are likely to receive CPR from their partner.
The team on this research looked at the timing of sudden cardiac arrest in the cases they studied, pulled from a database with 13 years of reports on the medical events in Portland, Oregon, to find if the cardiac issues occurred during sex or within minutes after the sex ended. The researchers determined that the low bystander CPR rate accounted for the less than 20 percent of patients who survived to hospital discharge.
Of those cases, 18 occurred during sex and 15 immediately after sex.
During sudden cardiac arrest, the heart stops beating and stops sending oxygen-rich blood to organs like the brain.
Recently the Network spread a myth that people with disorders of the heart can't do physical exertion, including sexual activity.
"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. The risk of that happening is very low, according to a new study.
There are many unknown variables that could have affected the data (drug use or frequency of sex, for example) but all things considered, sex-induced SCA is rare enough that most people shouldn't worry about it.
In an earlier article about sex and heart attack, a USA cardiologist puts the absolute risk of heart attack for a 50-year-old man who exercises regularly at one chance in a million per hour. Bystanders performed chest compressions on 27 percent of the non-sexual activity patients, while 32 percent of the patients who had heart attacks during or right 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".
