Washington: A new study has dispelled a myth that sudden cardiac arrests often take place during rigorous physical activity like while playing sports.While presenting a study at the 2012 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress about sudden cardiac death in Ontario, Dr. Andrew Krahn of the University of British Columbia suggested that sudden cardiac death is a problem that warrants attention, but he insisted that we should not blame the sports for it.Reviewing coroners’ reports, Dr. Krahn and a team of researchers found there were 174 cases of presumed sudden death in Ontario in 2008 in people aged two to 40 years.Heart disease was present in 126 cases (72 per cent), 78 per cent of which was unrecognized. The majority of victims were male (76 per cent) between the ages of 18 and 40 (90 per cent).
