Use of Aspirin for Chest Pain:

  • Aspirin for Adults With Nontraumatic Chest Pain

    While awaiting the arrival of emergency services, first aid providers may encourage alert adults experiencing nontraumatic chest pain to chew and swallow aspirin, unless the person experiencing pain has a known aspirin allergy or has been advised by a healthcare provider not to take aspirin.

  • Repeat Doses for Anaphylaxis:
  • When a person does not respond to an initial dose of epinephrine and EMS is not expected to arrive within 5 to 10 minutes, consider a repeat dose.
