What kind of people should not travel by plane?

The plane is an ideal transport. With the improvement of people’s living standard, more and more people travel by plane for business, tours, and visits. Medical research shows, however, people of the following groups are not advised to take a plane.

  • Carriers of infectious diseases like hepatitis, active pulmonary TB, and typhoid are not allowed to take a plane within the quarantine. Besides, a chicken pox carrier, if the wounds have not healed, is also prohibited.
  • Epileptics and patients of other forms of mental disorder are not admitted because the cramped and intense flight atmosphere is an easy trigger.
  • Patients of cardiovascular deficiencies, particularly those with cardiac insufficiency, myocardial anoxia, myocardial infarction, and severe hypertension, are not suitable for flights since they are prone to a relapse or aggravation due to the lack of oxygen at high altitudes.
  • Patients of cerebrovascular diseases, such as cerebral embolism, cerebral haemorrhage, brain tumour, are forbidden because the roar and vibration during the takeoffs and landings and the altitude anoxia could worsen the case.
  • Patients of respiratory diseases, such as pulmonary emphysema and pulmonary heart disease, are likely to aggravate in flight because of pneumothorax and bullae lung induced by air inflation inside the body.
  • Recipients of gastroenterological operations are not allowed to take a plane within ten days. Patients of alimentary canal bleeding are not allowed until three weeks after the bleeding stops.
  • Severe anaemic patients are not advised to take a plane if the amount of red blood-cells is below 50 g/l.
  • Patients of acute inflammation with exudation in the ear or nose, or patients who have recently had middle ear surgeries are not suitable for flights.
  • Women in labour, especially those who are more than 35 weeks pregnant, are not suitable for flights, because the fluctuation of the air pressure may cause premature deliveries.
