A heart attack occurs when the blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked by a blood clot. A blocked artery prevents oxygen-rich blood from reaching a section of the heart. If the blood flow is completely disrupted, that part of the heart can die.

Most people survive their first heart attack and can return to a normal life, but that new life will require some lifestyle changes that may help avoid another heart attack.

  • Be smoke free
  • Enjoy daily exercise
  • Eat heart-healthy foods
  • Find the right weight for your body
  • Get enough sleep
  • Learn how to de-stress
  • See your doctor regularly
Here are a few questions you may want to ask your healthcare provider:
  • How does aspirin help prevent another heart attack?
  • Can I take aspirin with other drugs, including other pain products?
  • What is the right dose of aspirin for me?
  • Do the daily vitamins I might be taking interfere with aspirin use?
  • What is the best exercise plan for me?
  • Should I take aspirin with food?
  • What is the best nutrition plan for me?
