new recommendations to prevent MIs

The new antithrombotic guidelines from the American College of Chest Physicians include new recommendations to prevent MIs.

To prevent a FIRST MI, give low-dose aspirin to patients over 50 with at least one risk factor for coronary artery disease... hypertension, high cholesterol, smoking, diabetes, obesity, or a family history of heart disease.

Have these patients take 80 to 325 mg/day of aspirin.
