If I took aspirin 75mg 30 hours prior to a d dimer could it cause false negative? Had neg today but worrying
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

Premature or normal: The heart rate is faster in the new born so that under 100 is usually considered to be bradycardia although that would be normal in an adult. Premature infants commonly have episodes of bradycardia and also apnea so that they not uncommnly end up on a home monitor/alarm.

For some: Probably up to 10% of the patients with severe persistent asthma may have aspirin-exacerbated-respiratory disease. Severe asthma may be triggered on this group with the common nsaids (cox 1). It is likely the genetic make-up in a person that has made him sick from taking nsaids. Thus the answer would be that NSAID per se triggers but not causes asthma which would go on even without nsaids. ...Read more
