According to the study by the Scientists including one Indian, in the United States, one in every nine men and one in every 30 women risks the sudden cardiac death mostly before the age of 70 years.
The high blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors were associated with high lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death in Americans.
Donald Lloyd-Jones from the Northwestern University US said,” We often screen for conditions that are less common and much less deadly than sudden cardiac death. The lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death for men is one in nine and yet we are not really screening for it.”

Each year in America, the sudden cardiac death claims up to 450,000 Americans lives as per the study. The researchers calculate the overall cumulative lifetime risk factor focusing on 4 major risk factors, blood pressure, total cholesterol, smoking, and diabetes.
They also studied that the sudden death occurred in 375 people and in comparison to women, the risk is more in men with an overall 10.9 percent lifetime risk among men at age 45 and 2.8 percent lifetime risk in women at age 45. Over one in eight men facing with two or more major factors has more lifetime risks of sudden cardiac death.
Long term endurance training does not cause any cardiac arrest in athletes. Donald Lloyd-Jones said,” sudden cardiac death has been very hard to study because most patients had no history of heart problems and were not being monitored at the time of their death and the majority of all cases occur before age 70, this is obviously sudden and devastating for families with a burden that can be quite severe.” Hence, it is advisable to stay healthy ,stay fit and stay happy.
