Recommendations for follow-up

Initial follow-up of aircrew for return to flight status should occur no sooner than 6 months after myocardial infarction (MI) and/or revascularisation to ensure acceptable flight safety risk. Highly recommended
After return to flight, aircrew should at minimum have an annual follow-up with their primary care provider, aviation medical examiner and cardiologist. Highly recommended
Annual review should include an ECG, resting echocardiogram and 24 hour Holter monitor. Consider
Exercise stress testing is not recommended as a sole investigation to determine ischaemia in the assessment of aircrew post-MI/revascularisation. Not recommended
