Depends on CAD risk: The age to begin taking Aspirin for cv prevention depends on the patient's risk. For those patients who already have had a heart attack or stroke, Aspirin should be prescribed regardless of age. For those at increased risk, with history of diabetes or peripheral vascular disease, Aspirin should be prescribed. For those without risk factors, generally begin at age 50 for men and 60 for women.

Location of beats: Atrial tachycardia is an arrhythmia with an abnormal electrical circuit beginning in the atria, the top portion of the heart. A junctional tachycardia is seen when the electrical impulses begin in the electrical tissue between the atria and ventricles. Both arrhythmias are categorized as supraventricular, meaning arising above the ventricle.

Possibly: If you have had a serious anaphylactic allergic reaction to aspirin, you should avoid all aspirin. This type of allergic reaction involves hypotension, severe respiratory distress, swelling of the larynx, and usually requires intubation and epinephrine. If you had a minor rash or stomach upset with aspirin, you could try the low-dose baby Aspirin dose, with food.
