Aspi-ring

Life saving keyring.

300 mg of asirin taken in the early stages of a heart attack has a significant impact on mortality i.e. it saves lives. Putting a tablet in an everpresent keyring with the instructions 'in the event of central crushing chest pain, break open swallow tablet and dial 999' (that's 911 to the Americans) would be a lifesaver.

You can't do someone much harm with a single asirin and it is an over-the-counter drug so no great problems with selling it.

       Psst <sp> aspirin.   

       Perhaps ear-rings that double as defibbrilator padds would be the next logical step.

       Sorry, doktors dont make spellas.

       We (USA) have keychains for carrying pills in (usually nitro). They are made of stainless steel, have a screw top lid and a rubber O ring.   

       They come in multiple sizes, with or without a medic alert symbol.   

       I have a friend that carries one with Allegra, Motrin, and gout attack pills in it.

       There is nothing new under the sun I guess. To really get publicity you could put a 'morning after pill' in a key chain. To up the stakes further you would do one with HIV post-exposure prophlaxis.

       Don't worry Doc, they laughed at my idea to have a soup bowl double as a mind control ray deflecting helmet. <= - ) (Just teasing, bun for you.)

       The Aspi-ring should be pirate-themed as well.

       Too low-tech. I'd prefer a membranous container, implanted into your stomach, that holds an aspirin pill in it. When you have a heart attack, press your belly button and the membrane pops and releases the pill internally.

       I agree phundug. I was thinking something similar, yet not as cool. Do HIV post-exposure [prophylaxes] work? I've heard or such things in my personal "avoid aids at all costs" research.

       HIV Post-exposure prophlaxis 'almost certainly' works but that is as definate an answer as you are likely to get from a doctor.

       Why not keep the tablet in a little locked box on the keyring? Then have the keyring monitor your heart rate so whenever something goes wrong, the keyring could unlock the tablet and allow access to it?
