Around 5 to 10 percent of sudden cardiac deaths are arrhythmias occurring in the absence of underlying structural heart disease (long QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic VT, all abnormalities seen on ECG).
But by comparison the lifetime risk of sudden cardiac death for men is much higher at one in nine, and yet we're not screening for it.
All of the deaths reported in the Neurology study met the widely accepted World Health Organization criteria for sudden cardiac death.
Editor's Note: "The results from this and previous studies may provide a rationale to design intervention studies to analyze whether magnesium supplementation could prove to be effective in lowering the burden of coronary heart disease mortality and sudden cardiac death," the authors said.
Smoking increases the risk of developing coronary artery disease, but it has been uncertain whether smoking increases the risk of sudden cardiac death in people who already have artery disease.
says Mayo Clinic's previous research showed that people with sleep apnea have a much higher risk of sudden cardiac death between midnight and 6 a.
In fact, it's possible that some may have died from a stroke that was later attributed to sudden cardiac death.
The researchers wanted to see whether prediabetes and type 2 diabetes were risk factors for sudden cardiac death.
However, rates of sudden cardiac death had not been examined in HIV-positive people until this study of 2860 HIV-positive adults in San Francisco.
Despite sudden cardiac death being a major cause of death world-wide(1), there is little epidemiological data about its prevalence in the countries involved in the registry: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Venezuela.
Each of the different factors -- a Mediterranean-style diet, a healthy weight, not smoking and exercise -- were linked to a smaller chance of sudden cardiac death, which is related to a malfunctioning of the electrical rhythm of the heart, the study in the Journal of the American Medical Association said.
What to do: This study doesn't prove that magnesium can prevent sudden cardiac death.
