Mayo Clinic Aspirin

Welshtaff 2012/01/03 03:36:14

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
6A.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 spirin 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).

Please read on.

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.

- 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


A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after

    Very good advice. Remember now that all you do is compression. Don't need to do mouth to mouth. Just keep doing compression until help arrives.

    This bogus information was repudiated by the Mayo Clinic back in Feb 2010 shortly after the misinformation was sent out. Shame on you for keeping this kind of trash active. You may actually be causing somebody harm!

    Good information! It is worth mentioning that the same instructions are given for people with CVA's (strokes). Some of those symptoms are seeing halo's, numbness on one side of the body, one side of the face drooping, headaches, changes in vision.

    Great information, but I wonder how one would know if they were having a heart attack? Most symptoms in women are very different and can actually be mild compared to mens symptoms.

    THANKS for the good advice and helpful information ..
    Also a good thing .. Like I've done .. is to have a Medic alert tied into your security system .. I wear mine around my neck .. and yes, it is comforting to know this is there and will recognize if I fall ..
  • Welshtaff sglmom 2012/01/03 04:02:18
    I should have the same thing, I have had 5 bypasses and I'm an uncontrollable diabetic, so far I have been fortunate that someone has been home to call the paramedics.
  • sglmom Welshtaff 2012/01/03 11:30:38
    For me .. not only is it a comfort to know I've got this to call for Emergency help for me .. but when others are not around .. this is the best that I've found to monitor my own health status .. and get me help for sure.
