UK: National Audit of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome 2011

Source: NHS Information Centre (UK)
From Press Release:

Men are more at risk than women of dying suddenly from cardiac arrest caused by irregular heart rhythms, a new report from the National Audit of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) suggests.

The second report from the audit also suggests the biggest proportion of SADS happens to people in their 30s.

Managed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre in partnership with the UK Cardiac Pathology Network and commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership, the audit analysed results of 317 cases from 17 hospitals recorded since July 2008.

Its findings include:

Nearly two thirds (62 per cent) of deaths were in males.
The average age of death where recorded was at 33.
The majority of deaths where recorded occurred between 6am and 6pm (72 per cent)
About a third (33 per cent) of people died while resting, while just under a fifth (19 per cent) died while in bed. Just over a sixth (17 per cent) died during some form of exertion.
