ASPIRIN

Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.

The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know. Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.

They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks.

There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.

If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards: - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.- Say "heart attack!" - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.

Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and ... DO NOT LIE DOWN!

Brij Guptaji. Yes I agree with you that those having History of Peptic or Duodenal Ulcer or having attacks of Acidity should not be taking Aspirin. The use of Low Dose Aspirin should also be done with the approval of your Cardiologist and your Gastroentrologist. Normally elderly people like us are advised. I am taking 81mg Aspirin daily. In India 50mg Low Dose Aspirin's are available. I have been taking Low Dose Aspirin for the last many years as a prevention. I have just come to know that a Study indicates that Low Dose Aspirin also prevents Cancer. I am putting this post today in the Local Circle. more  
Durga Prasad ji, at least I can tell you who should not take Aspirin - if any one has a history of peptic or duodenal ulcer, or if any body is suffering from frequent attack of acidity, should refrain from taking aspirin unless strongly advised by the doctor and in that case also, must be taken after food. more
