The following is from an AHA article:
One in nine men may be at higher risk of premature death due to sudden cardiac death – usually with no warning. One in 30 women may face the same risk.
The study offers the first lifetime estimates for sudden cardiac death among Americans.
High blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors were associated with a higher lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death – a finding which could lead to screening methods for sudden cardiac death.
About one in every nine men will experience sudden cardiac death, most before age 70, as well as about one in 30 women, according to research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Sudden cardiac death claims up to 450,000 American lives each year, according to the study and most commonly occurs in people with no prior symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
The current study offers the first lifetime risk estimates for sudden cardiac death.
