This Could Save Your Life

I have just ordered a little gizmo which you might have seen on the TV.  It is a keyring called an ASPOD and it could save your life.
The idea is that it holds soluble aspirin which can be taken immediately you suspect you may be having a heart attack. Read an interesting article here:
Heart Attack
The ASPOD can be purchased for £6.99 from:

I now, after my op, have to take a 75mg soluble aspirin each morning + clopidogrel which inhibits platelets forming clots.

Hope everything is still going well for you John.
The ASPOD is primarily meant for people who don't have a heart condition but suddenly are struck with pain etc.
Apparently most heart attacks occur at night and people put off having the pain investigated until the morning.  Soluble aspirin by the bed is also recommended.
