Aspirin is indicated in the presence of signs and symptoms of acute coronary syndromes such as those who are suffering from chest pain, pressure or discomfort including pain radiating into neck and jaw or down the right or left arm. Aspirin inhibits the sticking together of platelets and reduces clot formation. The use of Aspirin for myocardial infarctions helps to reduce death and the probability of reinfarction and stroke. The proper dose is to administer 2 to 4 chewable aspirin or 162-324 mg nonenteric coated as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms.
