Top tips for customers travelling with a heart condition
- Talk to your GP before you leave, as they can give you advice on travelling and provide you with a note confirming you have a heart condition in case you run into any problems while youre away.
- Keep details of your prescription to hand, including the generic name and the dosage. This will ensure you can ask for exactly what you need if you have to get more medication for any reason.
- Dont forget about time-zones when planning your doses. Your schedule might not be as convenient in local time.
- Keep mobile during your flight to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis and drink plenty of water. Try to avoid too much alcohol or caffeine.
- Be careful at high altitudes as the air will be thinner and put more strain on your heart.
