That's a rate of just 0.7 percent, the researchers noted. Of these, 32 were men. "But mostly I feel it's reassuring data". "And it's a wonderful answer for those who love sex".

"If you ask me why that is, I just don't know", Chugh said. "Now we can tell them the risk is very low".

A USA study of sudden cardiac arrests found only a third of cases that occurred during sex received "bystander CPR".

Men are more likely than women to have their heart stop as a result of sex.

According to the Hudaibiya reference, the Sharif family had set up the mill to launder money. Dar later retracted his statement and claimed that the statement was gleaned under duress.

The age range of the patients who suffered arrest during sex was 34 to 83.

To determine whether sexual activity might trigger sudden cardiac arrest, researchers examined records on 4,557 cases of cardiac arrest in adults between 2002 and 2015 in a community in the northwestern United States. Despite these sexual activity related SCA events being witnessed by a partner, bystander CPR was performed in only one-third of cases. She is director of the NYU Center for Women's Health and an AHA spokeswoman. It's possible, he said, that men have more underlying risks or that some took risky medications or supplements that did not show up in the study.

"The findings are reassuring", for people with heart disease concerned that sex might be unsafe, said senior author Sumeet Chugh, a cardiologist at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in Los Angeles. Additionally, 29% of the patients had a positive cardiovascular history and 26% had symptomatic heart failure.

The researchers say that the findings may help inform discussions between healthcare providers and patients on the safety of sexual activity.

Stabbing Confirmed at Mall of America
At least three people reportedly were stabbed at Mall of America in Bloomington shortly before 7 p.m. on Sunday. Jolene Situma said she was in the Macy's store when the incident occurred in the men's section.

There's one silver lining for people who have a cardiac arrest from sex - they're nearly twice as likely to survive, Chugh said.

According to researchers, although cardiac arrest during sex is not a common phenomenon, the importance of performing CPR on these patients can not be more emphasized.

"By now, there is recognition from a lot of research that if someone is around when you have your cardiac arrest and provides CPR while the ambulance is getting there, it can be potentially lifesaving", Chugh said. Due to embarrassment or shock or other reasons, only one third of the victims whose attacks were witnessed by their sexual partner actually received life saving CPR.

The study is scheduled to be presented Sunday at the American Heart Association's annual meeting in Anaheim, Calif.
