Tufts paper assesses effect of episodic sexual/physical activity on cardiac events
Date:3/23/2011

Boston (March 23, 2011) A paper, "Association of Episodic Physical and Sexual Activity With Triggering of Acute Cardiac Events," published in the March 23/30 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), highlights research done by Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) researchers Jessica K. Paulus, ScD, and Issa J. Dahabreh, MD. This paper was also developed into a JAMA Report video, available on the Tufts CTSI website. Broadcast formats are available at www.thejamareport.com.

The significance of this paper is that it summarizes a body of research that has spanned more than two decades and allows the synthesis of evidence from all available studies and the identification of patterns not discernible by looking at each study individually. This research is of broad interest to the general public since physical and sexual activity are common behaviors that affect a wide segment of the population. It's particularly important to clinicians since the study supports current clinical guidelines regarding the initiation of physical activity programs.

The JAMA paper assesses the effect of episodic physical and sexual activity on acute cardiac events using data from fourteen previously published studies. Acute cardiac events are defined in this study as myocardial infarction or sudden cardiac death. Acute cardiac events are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with as many as one million myocardial infarctions and 300,000 cardiac arrests occurring in the United States each year. Despite the well-established benefits of regular physical activity, anecdotal evidence has suggested that physical activity and psychological stress can act as triggers of acute cardiac events.

The authors conducted a meta-analysis of fourteen case-crossover studies published in thirteen articles; ten studies investigate
