Does High Altitude Have An Effect On The Angina?
Also is frequent bronchitis affected by high altitude - We are considering moving to a city that is 5,500 above sea level - we currently live at sea level and I get bronchitis about once or twice a year - also, the previous question I asked about the effects of high altitude on angina is because of the contemplated move - one more thing, I also have been under a cardiologist care for the past six years for cardiomyopathy (my ejection fraction tested again last week is 51)
Yes, can affect
Thanks for your query.
Yes, high altitude can be troublesome to one with Bronchitis. Cardiac problems are not know to get worsen due to high altitude. But if you suffer an attack of angina there, it could become a severe one.
These risks stay as long as you get acclimatized. Once you get acclimatized, the risks of worsening lowers.
Hope, I answered your query.
Wish you good health.

Yes, you are right.
Need not worry, high altitude can aggravate the condition so as to increase symptoms but not fatal.
Can be managed with medications. Also, this is not for long. Once you are acclimatized, there is nothing to worry.
