Should someone with cardiac ischemia and bradycardia, be concerned about flying (4-5 hr flight)?  Has not been treated as of yet, but has an appt with cardiologist...

Robin,

If this person has not been evaluated for bradycardia they should avoid flying until evaluated by a cardiologist. They should probably have a consult with an electrophysiologist! Hope this helps!

Good luck,
Dr. Stuart Pink, MD
