Summer Travel Tips from the Adult Congenital Heart Association

There are so many things to do when preparing for a trip, but add a congenital heart defect (CHD) to the equation and the to-do list grows. To help alleviate some of this stress, the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) website features useful information for CHD patients to consider when planning travel, such as travel insurance, the destination’s climate, preventing blood clots and exhaustion, and travelling with medications, a pacemaker or ICD.

In addition, the ACHA offers the ACHD Travel Directory, which is designed to help patients find emergency adult CHD care when traveling.
