Can a person travel on an airplane with hydrocephalus?
Yes! Some get a slight headache due to the pressure differences, but others have no problems at all. Some people use a Dr's not to get the wand instead of going through the metal detector in order to avoid the magnetic field interfering with the shunt setting. However, my son has never had a problem.

This entirely depends on where you are flying to. It can be as few as 20 minutes or as much as 18 hours in the air.
Hydrocephalus, also known as water on the brain, is a conditionwhere an abnormal amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) builds up inthe ventricles of the brain. This is a common …secondary conditionto the neural tube defect Spina Bifida, but it can occur on it'sown, most likely from a head injury.
The first president to fly in an airplane while in office was Calvin Coolidge in 1933. ? ?The first ex-president to fly in an airplane was Theodore Roosevelt, who flew as a pa…ssenger in a 4-minute flight in one of the early Wright biplanes on October 11, 1910, a year after he had left office. Theodore Roosevelt rode on a very short flight with the Wright brothers. The first sitting US president to fly in an air plane was Franklin Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt flew in a plane soon after he left office, so you can say he was the first ex-president who flew in an airplane. You can find reports that Calvin Coolidge took a plane ride while he was in office, but these reports can not be verified.
It can not. Hydrocephalus is not contagious. It develops with genetic diseases and disorders in an unborn child or newborn, and it can develop in adults who have certain disor…ders that prevent the proper flow of cerebrospinal fluid from where it is stored in the ventricle cavities inside the skull to outside the skull where it can be eliminated. Cerebrospinal fluid surrounds the brain and spinal cord and is circulated around the brain to cushion and protect the spinal cord and brain, to remove certain waste products, and to supply nutrients. This fluid moves from one ventricle (storage cavities) to other ventricles. Normally excess fluids will drain from the brain and get absorbed by other tissues. When there is blockage that stops the circulation or emptying process, the fluid can gradually build up and put pressure on the brain and become symptomatic with dementia, disruption in nerve signals and other problems caused by improper function of the Central Nervous System.
It's "are', "Is" is not proper spelling. And the answer is yes.
Yes, some pets, such as cats and dogs, may travel alone on an airplane provided that they are in a proper crate or kennel and have all the necessary papers. It may also de…pend on where the animal is going as some countries will not allow pets to travel by airplane.
Most airlines do not have a minimum age for babies on regular flights.
height not more than 9 feet and weight should be not more than 200 kgs
There is a limit to non-medical liquids that can be carried through a security checkpoint. Small quantities of toiletry articles CAN be carried- but the largest single contain…er may not be more than 3 ounces, and all liquids, gels and aerosols must fit in a single 1 qt ziplock plastic baggie. You will need to remove the baggie from your suitcase, and send it through the xray machine. See the link below. PS- please take it easy with the perfume BEFORE the flight. Too much fragrance can be overwhelming in a small place.
in your luggage you can but on a carry on bag.
To get to distant places faster than you would by car or train.
Probably with M.D. approval, however if the cabin were to somehow depressurize it could be a problem.
