Health precautions before you fly

It's vacation time and almost everybody is planning to include a few moments of leisure in their otherwise busy schedules and fly away to their dream destination. But at times, health problems like heart diseases, diabetes and blood pressure, or other health related conditions like pregnancy can give you anxious moments during the journey. Therefore, it's best to be cautious so as to avoid any untoward incident during air travel. Always remember to take your doctor's advice before you board the aircraft and avoid air travel if you have suffered a heart attack in the past two weeks or have undergone coronary artery stent placement or a bypass surgery in the past 2-3 weeks or if you are afflicted with angina, congestive heart failure or cardiac arrhythmia or your pregnancy is a complicated one - Times of India
