Mayo Clinic on Aspirin

Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - PASS IT ON


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.

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
