Chewable aspirin gets more rapidly absorbed than regular aspirin

By Super Admin

Washington, May 15 (ANI): Analysing three different types of aspirin for their beneficial effects, scientists at the University of California, San Diego have come up with a finding that may lead to improvements in the care of heart attack patients.

Lead researcher Dr. Sean Nordt has revealed that the three types of aspirin given to a group of volunteer were regular aspirin swallowed whole, regular aspirin chewed and swallowed, and chewable aspirin chewed and swallowed.

The team then measured blood levels of aspirin to see which route led to the highest aspirin levels in the body.

They found that the chewable aspirin consistently showed greater and more rapid absorption than the regular aspirin, whether swallowed whole or chewed.

Dr. Nordt made a presentation on the team's findings at the 2009 SAEM Annual Meeting at the Sheraton New Orleans recently.

The study has been reported in the journal Academic Emergency Medicine. (ANI)
