Anyone have info on places to travel to safely ?Mon, 11/08/2021 - 10:11PM
my father has had an lvad for about a year now, and he has some hopes of traveling. In particular, in Central America. The hospital at one point mentioned if he’d be traveling, it’d be a good idea to have an lvad clinic nearby in whatever place he was venturing, if anything were to happen. Does anyone have any idea where I can access info on what countries have lvad clinics? I’m having a hard time finding accessible info... If we’re unable to travel to Central America, perhaps we can explore somewhere else but I’m just not sure where to start.
also does anyone have experience traveling without having an lvad clinic around? Maybe that’s another option to explore but I also want him to feel safe.
Meanwhile, I want him to be able to experience life as he’d like to. Any info is greatly appreciated!
