Bayer Aspirin helping reduce heart attack risks

While UK doctors prefer to administer Paracetamol as a pain relief drug, US and continental doctors have a preference for Aspirin.

Aspirin is an anticoagulant, which means it helps reduce blood clotting. It also has a similar pain relieving effect to Paracetamol which makes it a very useful resource. Brands like Bayer Aspirin are widely available at pharmacists.

When administered to patients suspecting a heart attack, Aspirin has been proven to reduce the risk by up to 23% , and when taken for 30 days following a heart attack can minimalise the possibility of further attacks.

Studies into the use of Aspirin as a remedy for heart attacks have concluded that as many as 10,000 lives could potentially be saved every year.

So how does it work?

Aspirin works by reducing the number of platelets produced in the blood stream. Too many platelets can lead to clotting of the blood. Platelets release a prostaglandin called thromboxane, and Aspirin has an irreversible prostaglandin blocking ability which inhibits the biosynthesis of thromboxane. This process greatly reduces the possibility of blood clotting.

It is always advised that professional medical help is sought before taking aspirin, especially if you’re already taking prescription drugs. Although Aspirin is available over the counter, always consult your doctor first.

Aspirin slows the production of hormone-like prostaglandins through biosynthesis, a bodily system which functions on a cellular level. Prostaglandins have many different functions and are part of the body’s chemical messenger system which feed the brain information about the body’s physical condition.

Prostaglandins indicate aberrations like pain, fevers, inflammation of muscles or around cuts, swelling, and even in contracting certain muscles like the uterus. Because Aspirin lowers the amount of prostaglandins in the body, it can be a useful way to combat pains, fever and even to a certain extent, the discomfort of menstrual cramps.
