My Mom is travelling out of the country tomorrow and her flight is 16 hours. She has been going to the docs everyday to do BP monitoring and its a bit high 160/60. She is 77 years has diabetes but is getting around pretty good now that her heal ulcer is healed.
Anyway, the doc is upping her meds today and going over them before she leaves. She says she really shouldn't be travelling with it up. Does the cabin pressure make your BP go up? What questions should I ask her doctor for her? I think the recent spike in her BP has to do with pre-flight anxiousness.
I also gave her some instruction on In-Flight Fitness to prevent DVT.
