Thanks for the query.
In general, yes, commercial flights are safe for heart patients. Air travel does not pose great risks to most patients with heart disease
. But there are some situation where flying is not allowed and these heart patients need to avoid flying, at least temporarily, because of the increased risk posed by being confined to a high-altitude (and therefore low-oxygen) compartment. (Airplane cabins are pressurized to the equivalent of approximately 10,000 feet above sea level.)
The situations where flying is to be avoided are,
- At least for 1week after heart attack
- For 2-3weeks after bypass surgery
- Patient with uncontrolled heart failure
requiring oxygen and those with uncontrolled arrhythmia
For most other patients it is safe to take commercial flight as passenger. Looking at your description it looks fine to fly. However, if you have any specific questions do get back to me.
