Aspirin Given After a Heart Attack

Aspirin reduces the blood's tendency to clot in blood vessels after a heart attack. Receiving an aspirin as soon as possible during or after a heart attack has been shown to improve a person's ability to survive a heart attack.

This score measures the percentage of heart attack patients who received an aspirin within 24 hours before or after their arrival at the hospital.

A higher score is better than a low score.
