A Heart For Aspirin

Aspirin Info

To add to your body of body knowledge: Dr. Virend Somers, 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, Somers said.
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

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………….years. (when it gets old, it smells like

Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They
work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep aspirin by your bedside?

There are other symptoms of an 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 ~

A Cardiologist has stated that if each person, after receiving this
e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life can be saved.
