Impact on blood pressure when on an airplane.

Q: Does being on an air plane for prolonged periods impact blood flow or aneurysms?

A: Prolonged sitting on an airplane can increase the risk of blood clots forming, especially in the legs. Although space is limited, it helps to do a few stretches. Do be considerate of your fellow passengers. On long flights, some airlines have exercise videos on the personal TV sets. Look for them the next time you fly.
