Coronary Artery Disease and Flying
There is no reason to be concerned about flying with/without oxygen unless there is objective evidence (rather than a "feeling") you have untreated coronary blockages, easily evaluated with a stress test, and/or a CTCA.

I recommend you to cancel your flight and the seminar, read what my site has to offer and spend your money on consultation and especially follow-up with a local nutritionist, as well as starting an exercise program once your heart is cleared!
