How do you give aspirin to someone who is having a heart attack?

Oral. Pill and sip, of water. Under tongue can get some absorption if not swallowing. Rectal suppository if available, and if not able to swallow a pill.
Chew. Chew, chew it up. That's the fastest way to get it in their bloodstream. If they are unresponsive you cannot give it to them as it could end up in their airway. Good question.
