Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
I have not myself. But I have seen damaged hearts.
No. I meant you are MORE at risk while playing on cocaine. The arteries of the heart are more likely to spasm when you are exerting yourself
Yes, perhaps I worded that poorly
Absolutely YES! Cocaine can cause a heart attack
please don't forget a positive rating. I appreciate it. If you have more questions, just reply
No problem. I think what you are getting at is what are your real world chances, if your heart is normal, of having a cocaine induced cardiac death?
The issue here is that cocaine doesn't kill people by typical means. So even if the heart is not damaged it can cause death through arrhythmias and spasm of coronaries.
That being said, the risk is still low. Think of all the people that use cocaine and don't drop dead. It is a small percent overall. Less than 5% probably
I would ask for a positive rating first and accepting additional services.
I have provided a great deal of information so far. Thanks
I can opt out for another expert. Hold tight.
