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.

Had an Aspod delivered to me in Spain very quickly. I am going to recommend Aspod to my family and friends. Customer Support have been Excellent and they even emailed me to ask if my Aspod had arrived and told me that even if my dog chews my Aspod it would still be under the 2 year guarantee!!! You can't put a price on your life!, So I am going to carry the Aspod everywhere I go.

According to a report which I read recently, the proportion of patients receiving pre-hospital aspirin from a paramedic or alternative health provider ranged from 19% to 78%, depending on the Ambulance Service involved. Bad news if you are unlucky enough to live in an area served by an Ambulance Service with only 19% compliance! The ASPOD has got to be good news!

Excellent product, and excellent company! I used to carry an aspirin in a little poly bag in my purse, but it always got squashed and the bag got torn. This device is wonderful, and having a reminder to replace the tablets, is genius! I think it should be sponsored by the NHS.

Great idea the Aspod. My wife and I both carry Aspod at all times and we have recently purchased two more for other family members - very comforting!
