Aspirin has been touted as panacea for extending life and preventing heart attacks. Should I take it at altitude ?

Maybe. If you take it on a regular basis at home, then continue taking it at altitude. Whether or not aspirin really is beneficial in sojourners to altitude is unknown. There are theoretical grounds for taking it, at least at extreme altitude (above 18,000 feet, 5590 meters), but it doesn’t make sense for everyone at altitudes below that. Discuss this with an altitude-savvy doctor.
