Subject: Mayo Clinic on Heart Attacks
Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic,
who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of
the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally
between 6 A.M.and noon. Having one during the night, when
the heart should be most at rest, means
that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues
have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is
1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day,
take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life";
therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the
wee hours of the morning, the
Aspirin would be strongest in your system.
Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest
for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).
Please read on.
Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks -
There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the
pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense
pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating;
however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.
The majority of people (about 60%) who had
a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up.
However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from
your deep sleep.
If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth
and swallow them with a bit of water.
- Call 911.
- Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.
- Say "heart attack!"
- Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.
- Take a seat on a chair or sofa
near the front door, and wait for their arrival

Roger Hypes will be sharing some human interest stories of people, events, and places of our Locust community.
One of the definitions of community is the area itself; people with common interests living in a particular area. The Remember When… column should help us better understand the history, people and happenings of Locust, the place we call home.
Remember When…will help us all to take the time out of our busyness to reflect, reminisce, think back, recollect, go over in the memory and hopefully, be able to share a smile of a memory to make us better appreciate the present. Take a deep breath, lay in the grass and look up in the sky of the cloud shapes, or the stars at night.
I would ask that if you have an event, a crossroads, a person that has helped create the history of Locust, get in touch with Roger Hypes (email@example.com. “Remember When…” will not be in every week update of Locust Patch, but when stories are available and to give the story the value it deserves. Be thinking as I feel this will be a good way for all of us to appreciate what we have, and where we live.
