Is it safe for my wife to travel by air?
Q: My wife is 60 years old. She has high blood pressure and calcification of the heart. She hears some continuous noises in her ears. I would like to know if it's safe for her to travel by air. Will she face any problems in the flight? She is on Atorlip EZ (1/2 alternate days, 5 mg), Ecosprin 75 mg, Listril and Biduret (1/2).
A:The noises in ear could be because of the medications she is taking for her heart problem. This can be verified by some simple tests. From the ENT point of view there is no problem in travelling. The opinion of your treating cardiologist is vital in this case.
