I'm visiting Tenerife next month, and one of the trips I would like to do is to Mount Teide. However, this is at an altitude of over 2200 metres, and is "not recommended for those with heart or respiratory problems". Does anyone with AF have experience of being at the altitude? I wasn't sure if this really referred to heart 'plumbing' rather than 'electrical' problems. My heart rate is currently fine at around 60bpm, and has been since my last ablation just over a year ago. However, I had a bad episode a couple of weeks ago when it was up to 160bpm for a couple of days. My doctor doubled my bisprolol dose, and it came back down to 60bpm.
I really would like to do this trip, but don't want to put myself at risk, or invalidate my insurance (AF declared!).
