What to Do After Calling 911

  • Rest.
  • Limit activity to decrease stress on your heart.
  • Have someone collect your medications so paramedics and doctors know what you're taking.
  • Chew one adult-strength (325 milligrams) or two to four low-dose (81 milligrams) aspirin. Coated aspirin is slow to act and won’t help in this instance. Chewing gets the aspirin into your system faster, where it works to stop blood from clotting.
