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 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............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?
About Heart Attacks

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 ofsweating, 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~

I'm good now. My cardiologist has me taking one daily...along with Plavix, Lipitor, fish oil, etc. I'm a real pill popper for sure.

  A physicians assistant put me on the aspirin regimine a few years back but it thinned my blood to much.  I'd bruise just scratchin'.

  I try to stay away from scrip meds if possible.  A low dose of bp med once a day and  a muscle relaxer when needed is about it.
