who should get aspirin to prevent an initial heart attack or stroke

New recommendations will focus more on AGE to determine who should get aspirin to prevent an initial heart attack or stroke.

Previous guidelines relied more on RISK calculators...and recommended aspirin for patients with a cardiovascular risk of at least 6% over 10 years.

In general, the new recommendations recommend low-dose aspirin for men age 45 to 79...and women age 55 to 79.
