HOW ASPIRIN® 81MG COULD HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE DURING A HEART ATTACK
Find out why ASPIRIN® 81mg works, what it does and how it can help save your life during a heart attack.
HOW DOES ASPIRIN® 81MG WORK TO HELP KEEP BLOOD FLOWING?
It Starts with Platelets
Platelets are cell fragments in your bloodstream that produce a sticky substance so that when you get a cut, they stick together — or clot. This clotting action happens when the sticky substances produced by platelets form a kind of “mesh.”
Platelets Make Blood Clot
Platelets act like a dam along the place you’re injured in order to stop the bleeding. But sometimes clots can form within your blood vessels, too. This kind of clotting action may happen because your platelets stick to other artery-blocking substances, restricting blood flow.
ASPIRIN® 81mg Inhibits Blood Clots
ASPIRIN® 81mg works by preventing further platelet build-up, reducing the chance of new blood clots forming. Since blood clots can block the arteries that supply blood to your heart, the anti-clotting action of ASPIRIN® 81mg means blood can flow more freely while you seek further medical help to take care of the blockage. Carry ASPIRIN® 81mg with you. It may help save your life.
Surviving a heart attack can mean you’re at a higher risk for another. The good news: You can still manage other risk factors.
