The Doc Is In

Doctor Whipitout is a certified cardiologist. He’s here to talk man-to-man about the cold hard facts of a heart attack. Seriously, he's a real doctor - but his name isn't as catchy. 

So Is It True That Guys Have Heart Attacks Most Often During Sex?

No. That’s Hollywood stuff. Only 2.2% of heart attacks involve sex. Fact is, most guys over 45 usually suffer from heart attacks between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. So if you have an early tee time, run in the morning, or just get stressed in traffic, it pays to carry a packet of Critical Care Aspirin. In the winter shoveling snow, particularly if you are out of shape, lands many in the hospital due to a heart attack. 

How Can a Little Thing Like Aspirin Help Something as Deadly as a Heart Attack?

It's important to speak to your doctor about this. Seriously important, because someone somewhere suffers a heart attack every 47 seconds. Research shows there’s something you can do about it. Critical Care Aspirin helps you get the right dose right away—so you can boost your odds of survival by up to 23%. 

When Should I Start Thinking About a Heart Attack? 50 or So?

The trick to surviving a heart attack is recognizing you are at risk before you have one. According to WebMD, 20% of people under 50 admitted to a Wisconsin hospital had signs that put them at risk for a heart attack. Heart attacks happen to people who are younger and more fit than you would think. This doctor's advice? Everyone over 45 should learn to recognize the symptoms of a heart attack and know what to do. Even if you're younger than 45, carrying aspirin may help save the life of a loved one, friend or in-law.

A Heart Attack Isn’t Going to Take You Down if You’re Not Doing Something Overly Strenuous or Stupid. Right?

Not quite. In 2013 some poor Blackhawks fan watching the Stanley Cup Final went down with a heart attack. Luckily he survived. There are plenty of reported triggers for heart attacks that have nothing to do with overdoing an activity; including heavy traffic, anxiety, large meals, and even reasonable consumption of alcohol. If you are over 45, it pays to carry Critical Care Aspirin everywhere.

What Does Aspirin Do During a Heart Attack?

Aspirin is often praised for its many beneficial and life-saving attributes. One of the most amazing effects of aspirin is that is makes blood platelets less prone to clot. A heart attack occurs when the supply of blood and oxygen to an area of heart muscle is blocked, usually by a clot in a coronary artery. Taking aspirin immediately at the first sign of heart attack symptoms helps prevent the formation of additional blood clots, which can further block blood flow within the heart. Thus, in the event of a heart attack, additional heart muscle damage may be prevented or delayed by taking aspirin, buying a heart attack victim critical time to get to a hospital for treatment by a doctor.

Additionally, research shows taking aspirin in powder form increases absorption into the bloodstream approximately 2.4 times faster than swallowing an aspirin pill whole.* This is critical, as every second counts in the event of a heart attack.
