Is it safe to go skydiving if you have a heart condition?
I've always wanted to go skydiving and my 21st is coming up so I want do do it. I'm not worried about me.... I want to skydive with my husband.. I think it would be fun and good for him..... he's always so serious (he's an accountant go figure ) He needs to do something crazy lol. but.... he's 53 and he had a heart attack 6 years ago (myocardial infaction) and he takes medication (beta blockers, lipex & some other stuff). Is it safe for him to go skydiving??? I mean its jumping out of a plane from 15,000 feet which is pretty scary...... Any advice from doctors?
Additional Details

no.. unless you want to die..

abstain frm suicidal attempts

Yes it would be very risky. Skydiving schools ask for your medical history and most would never even allow him to go up if they know about his heart condition.

i'm not a doctor, but my boyfriend who is 20 has had open heart surgery twice (ages 5 & 17) due to heart problems , has always had the desire to go skydiving, but his step dad who is a surgeon told him that it would not be able to. it wasn't safe for him and could be a risk.

I'm no doctor. From what you've said, I'm very much in similar health as your hubby. I would not skydive or ride a roller coaster. There was a true incident re-enacted on tv where a young fellow on his first jump buddy dived with
a older instructor, strapped together. The instructor died of a heart attack
on the way down & the young fellow miraculously managed to pull the chute
cord himself just in time.

Skydiving may increase pulse rate and blood pressure. The anxiety/adrenaline rush will increase heart rate abruptly. This may cause life threatening cardiac arrhythmia/ heart attack. Consult a cardiologist.

i am not a doctor yet, i am medical student. if he currently doesn't have angina (stable or unstable) and if he is VERY active then odds are it won't be the end of him. but with that said i would still strongly advice against it. skydiving is a tremendous stress even for a normal healthy heart let alone a post MI heart. if you want to do something crazy try something like a swinger party or something if the B-blockers aren't getting in the way.
