These two little blue ASPIRIN pills can help save a person’s life, so carry them in your purse or as I do in my wallet. A recent heart attack in our family reminded me of the reason why I carry two wrapped safely in cellophane in my wallet.
When you phone 911 with heart attack symptoms, they will probably ask you to get the victim to chew two aspirin tablets as soon as possible. In my family member’s case it brought almost instant relief to the painful heart attack symptoms, while the ambulance was enroute. Many people don’t even have aspirin at home anymore, so at least add it to your grocery shopping list.
Aspirin slows the blood’s clotting action by reducing the clumping of platelets. Platelets are cells that clump together and help to form blood clots. Aspirin keeps platelets from clumping together, thus helping to prevent or reduce blood clots. Most heart attacks and strokes are caused by blood clots.
As the label says: Call 911, then chew 2 tablets if you think you’re having a heart attack.
