Summer Travel with PH

For many PH patients, travel is an important part of their professional and personal lives. Being diagnosed with PH is no reason to think that your traveling days are over! Though additional planning is required, there are a wide variety of resources available today to help you through the extra steps of traveling with PH.
Before deciding to plan a trip, you’ll want to consider the effects of altitude and weather on your body. Read our Climate and PH section to learn what to keep in mind.
Planning well ahead of travel ensures that your trip is as safe and enjoyable as possible. Review your travel plans with your doctor as early as you can. Be sure to discuss the need for supplemental oxygen, the amount of medications and medical supplies you should pack and the altitude during travel and at your travel destination.
Pulmonary Hypertension: A Patient’s Survival Guide is a great resource for additional travel tips and anecdotes from PH patients.
