Air Travel with PAT
I have PAT (Paroxysmal Atrial Tachycardia) and presently take Atenolol everyday.
On occasion when I have elevated heart rate I go to the Hospital and get an injection of Adenosine.
Recently. even though I'm taking Atenolol, I had to get a Hospital Adenosine treatment to calm things down. I have tried the usual self-help remedies, but they donít help much.
I plan to take a 10-hour airplane trip and I am concerned about having an episode of elevated heart rate while Iím in the air and having to wait several hours for medical treatment.
My questions are:
What do other folks do who have PAT and take long airplane flights?
Have you had an attack?
If so what have you done?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
