Travelling with ischemic heart disease
Ischemic heart disease, also known as coronary heart disease, is a medical condition that you’ll definitely need suitable cover for when travelling. But there’s no reason for you not to have a great time away. Travelling with ischemic heart disease means that with just a little more advance planning and small, simple adjustments, you can have a happy and healthy trip.
Choosing the holiday that’s right for you
The best way to make travelling with ischemic heart disease easier is to plan your holiday properly and well in advance. Your doctor will be able to provide you with some useful and personalised ischemic heart disease travel tips, so don’t forget to discuss your plans with them before you book.
Consider how relaxing you’d like your trip to be, what you’d like to get out of it, and try to be honest with yourself about what you can and can’t do. Depending on your condition, there are probably a few things that are out of bounds. Spa and sauna facilities, such as Jacuzzis, hot tubs and steam rooms, aren’t usually recommended for people with ischemic heart disease, for example. This is another thing you can check with your doctor.
Ischemic heart disease travel tips
- There are some basic things you can do to make your holiday run smoothly, without unnecessary stress. We’ve gathered together some of the top tips for travelling with ischemic heart disease below.
The travelling part of any holiday can make anyone weary and stressed, so take some measures to keep things calm, such as:
- Pack as lightly as you can, using a suitcase on wheels that’s easy to manoeuvre. And don’t be afraid to accept help when necessary!
- Make all the arrangements, such as transfers and taxis, in advance of your trip.
- Ask for an aisle seat and stretch your legs on the plane. Moving about every half an hour will encourage your blood to circulate and lower the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (blood clots).
- Drink plenty of water while onboard and avoid alcohol so that you stay hydrated.
Properly organising your medication is the most important thing you can do to ensure a relaxing holiday. We’d recommend:
- Taking more of your medication that you’d normally need in case of any delays, loss or damage. Your doctor will be able to help you with this.
- Work out when you’ll need to take your medication if you’re traveling to a different time zone.
- Keep your medication safely in your hand luggage.
- Consider taking your prescription or notes on the type and dosage of your medication in case you need treatment or need to source more medication while abroad.
It’s also really important to keep in good health by staying hydrated, especially if you’re in a warm country. Keep a good stock of bottled water in your room and always carry some with you when out and about.
We hope you’ve found our ischemic heart disease travel tips useful and we wish you a fantastic holiday!
