For Pharmacists

SMHeartCard is a proven way to give your patients immediate access to emergency cardiac medications. The quicker your patient gets ASA and NTG during a heart attack, the better chance of survival. One third of Canadians with a heart attack do not survive long enough to get to an emergency room. SMHeartCard could save your patient's life.

SMHeartCard is for three groups of people: those with known Coronary Artery Disease, those with risk factors for Coronary Artery Disease, and for those who may be First Responders and need to treat someone else having a heart attack.

Nitroglycerin is a Schedule II drug - it does not not require a prescription for you to give to your client. To make it easy, we provide assessment brochures when we ship to your store.  Or click here to download and print the one page assessment page. 

NitroStat 0.3mg is readily available from your medication wholesaler, and new data shows the pills are stable up to 2 years even when the glass bottle is opened and closed many times. 

SMHeartCard needs to be refilled with fresh NitroStat pills every 6 months.

Each SMHeartCard comes with directions inside the box. The SMHeartCard Pharmacy Kits make it easy to assess and educate the patient with a simple check-box form and tear off instructions.

SMHeartCard has been validated at the University of Alberta Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and keeps NitroStat 0.3mg pills for six months at body temperature, and they perform identically to NitroStat pills kept in the original glass bottle for six months at room temperature (see our Science Page for more details and the Canadian Medical Association Journal paper) or click here for the Mortar&Pestle article.  The full manuscript has been peer reviewed and published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
