If I took aspirin 75mg 30 hours prior to a d dimer could it cause false negative? Had neg today but worrying

No: 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. Having said that, a negative D-dimer test is good indication of lack of clots in the blood system. Aspirin taken 30 hours prior would not cause a false negative.

No: If you recovered from the acute illness, you should not suffer long term damage, with the exception of the disorder that led you to overdose yourself. It would be a good idea to seek counseling for your attempted suicide.

What are causes of bradycardia in the neonate?

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. Rates below 100 are common and unless the rate is dropping below 60 it is unlikely a problem. Dr. Might recommend alarm though. ...Read more

Does aspirin cause asthma or just make it worse if it exists?

Does aspirin cause asthma or just make it worse if it exists?

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

Trying to find a cause for my sons[15] bradycardia 40 -45. Can vit d deficiency cause it? His is 10.

Many possible causes: I would recommend that your son see a pediatric cardiologist for this issue, if he has not already. Vit d deficiency is not known to cause this problem, but many people have this issue and need supplementation. If your son only has this bradycardia for a portion of the day, and otherwise has a normal rhythm and heart rate response to exercise, no treatment is probably necessary. ...Read more
