The Doctors discuss a man making headlines because he flew Qantas airlines straight from London to Perth, Australia without getting out of his seat once the entire 17-hour flight! He said he was so comfortable there was no need to get up. The Doctors say this was possibly dangerous to his health.
Deep vein thrombosis or DVT is a dangerous blood clot that forms in the legs, and flying for long periods of time greatly increases the incidence of this occurring. The Doctors say to definitely walk around on long flights. The Doctors suggest setting an alarm to remind yourself to get up during the flight.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra adds that wearing compression stockings to keep blood flowing is a good idea on long flights and possibly taking Advil or aspirin if you need it as an anticoagulant (ask your doctor first about this).
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon comments on the Qantas passenger saying that he must have one heck of a bladder and prostate! Dr. Batra shares that most of us can only hold 16 ounces or about 2 cups of urine in our bladders, so holding that throughout an entire flight can cause issues. There are a lot of health risks for sitting an entire flight so don’t be like the Qantas man who sat for 17 hours and get up out of your seat!
