Sexual activity is rarely associated with sudden cardiac arrest, a life-threatening malfunction of the heart's electrical system causing the heart to suddenly stop beating, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2017, a premier global exchange of the latest advances in cardiovascular science for researchers and clinicians. All reported cases were based on emergency medical service reports containing detailed information regarding the cause of the cardiac arrest.

Only a third of those suffering from cardiac arrest from sex received potentially life-saving CPR-despite the likelihood that a partner was around to witness the arrest.

Of the total cohort who suffered SCAs in the 13-year study period, the authors found just 0.7 percent of the pool-34 patients-experienced SCAs related to sex.

Researchers also didn't report on what type of sexual encounters occurred, making it hard to determine how strenuous the activity may have been for patients.
