Dying with Embarrassment

The heart stops in the bedroom while love making. It is more common than you would think. No fatal accident claim can be made, of course but it is something that has been brought to the attention when considering the response from the British Heart foundation (BHF).

The BHF said that the findings should not scare people off sex. In fact is like exercise it can be good for the heart. For more information please see Sex and Heart Disease.

Patients Who Collapsed During Sex

When there is a fatal injury due to a patient who collapses during sex, they are less likely to received cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and had to wait longer for treatment.  The delays?  Due to the embarrassment of sex.

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops beating as a result of an irregular rhythm and is quickly fatal without treatment or CPR.

A heart attack, however, is where the blood flow to the heart is blocked.  A different condition. Cardiac arrest is more likely to occur in men.  The issue is awareness in women to recognise the symptoms and to administer CPR and seek professional help urgently.
