Indigestion or Heart Attack?
If you are experiencing chest pain, breathlessness and feeling generally unwell and suspect it may be indigestion take an antacid such as Gaviscon® or Rennies®. In the vast majority of cases the symptoms of indigestion will have eased within 10-20 minutes of taking the antacid. If the symptoms persist, spread, or get worse seek immediate medical advice/attention in case it is a heart attack – DO NOT WAIT.

Thank you for creating this ingenious device. I live in a rural area and the Aspod gives me confidence to venture out more. I love the fact that I get free email reminders to change my aspirin and a free spare pod. So rare to get anything free these days.

I bought 2 Aspod directly for myself about 18 months ago and I've spent some time "sharing" what a good idea these are, with other first aiders at work! This week, we've got them issued to all first aiders who want to carry one for themselves! Excellent! Also helps clearly identify our first aiders!
