Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Can you tell me please, how old is your wife? How long has she had the diagnosis of Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension? And I see she is not on oxygen but is taking Adempas. Just to be sure, she’s not taking and anticoagulants (blood thinners), correct?

She is taking Coumadin and diagnosis was a year and a half ago and she is 60 years old.
Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Thank you for that information. Other than making sure she gets up to move once in a while during the travel portion of your trip, with CTEPH and her current medications, yes, your wife can safely travel to St. Augustine, FL with the temperature in the high 80’s and higher humidity levels, it is safe.
Can I answer anything else for you today?
