INDIA: India is the second largest populated country with the maximum rate of youth. However, in the recent past, the sudden demise of youngsters triggered high alert amongst people, and ‘heart attack’ became a topic of discussion.

Meanwhile, Dr. Edmond Fernandes, a physician, took to his Twitter handle and surfaced caution and advisory measures. He suggested everyone keep aspirin tablets available with them.

Dr. Fernandes wrote, “With #heartattack trending, keep tab Aspirin 300 mg in your pockets/wallets always and pop it asap if you develop sudden severe chest pain/radiating to neck-left arm. Don’t neglect chest pain as gastritis. Evaluate evaluate. Your heart, your life. Don’t let the valentine fail you.”

Heart attacks aren’t common at a very early age, but surprisingly, people aged between 20-40 became affected by them.

Prominent figures of Bollywood like Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi, Raju Srivastava, and Sidharth Shukla lost their lives to heart attack. 21-year-old social media influencer Megha Thakur also died from a heart attack. Industrialist Vikram Kirloskar recently suffered a massive heart attack and died.

Anand Kumar Pandey, Director, and Senior Consultant- Cardiology, Dharamshila Narayana Superspeciality Hospital, discussed the work process of Aspirin says, “Aspirin is from a group of medications called salicylates. It works to stop the production of certain natural sickness substances that cause fever, pain, swelling, and blood clots. Aspirin is also combined with other medications such as antacids, pain relievers, and cough and cold medications.”

On the other hand, Dr. Sudeep explained that all should avoid Aspirin medication. “Ecosprin is avoided in patients with gastric ulcer and severe anaemia as it might cause uncertain GI bleeding and other forms of bleeding. A cardiac patient should not stop aspirin tablets without consulting a cardiologist,” he added.

One should always try any medicine after consulting with their doctors because everyone has a different health condition, and the dosage entirely depends upon that.

Heart attacks or cardiac arrest feel the same as gastric pain and are thus often misinterpreted. Some significant signs of heart attack, as suggested by doctors, are intense chest pain, pressure and tightness in the chest, a sudden feeling of dizziness, fainting, sweating, and shortness of breath.
