What to do if you’re having a heart attack:

If you routinely take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. Since aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life,” and if you experience a heart attack in the wee hours of morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.

Aspirin has a really long shelf-life in your medicine cabinet…sometimes even years. When it gets old, it smells like vinegar.

Keep aspirin by your bedside in case of a nighttime heart attack.

First, remember that there may be no pain in the chest during a heart attack. There are other less obvious symptoms of a heart attack than pain in the chest, the jaw, or the left arm. For example, symptoms may come in the form of intense pain in the area of the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating. These symptoms are likely to occur less frequently.

About 60% of people who have had an heart attack during their sleep were not awakened by the event. Nevertheless, if it does occur while you are asleep, the chest pain may wake you — even from a deep sleep.

If that happens, IMMEDIATELY DISSOLVE TWO ASPIRINS IN YOUR MOUTH and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards, phone a neighbor or a family member who lives nearby. Tell them you think you may have had a heart attack and that you have taken two aspirins. Then sit on a chair or sofa and wait for someone to arrive to help. DO NOT LIE DOWN !!!
