You may be out for a leisure trip or for work but there are always some must haves which you should carry in your bag when you travel. From sunglasses, shoes to scarves, designers list a few must haves when on vacation.
There is never a reason for not standing out or making a fashion statement, say designers.
Here is what vacationers should carry in their travel bags:
Aditi Holani: A must carry for travelling is some sunscreen, glasses, a black jacket so that you can translate any attire into a formal. Also carry a tote bag which goes perfect with a day out and a pair of swede shoes that go with the clothes you plan to wear.
Sounia Gouhil: I will recommend carrying a good pair of sun glasses, your make up kit, a sanitizer, kajal, a writing pad, a pen, mobile and a hand towel. Carry a scarf or stole adding to your fashion statement. A chic hat will also come handy if you are out in the sun or on a beach destination.
Shouger Merchant Doshi: I think it is important to pay attention to the destination. Carry comfortable clothes and sports shoes when you have adventure on your mind. If you are out for a beach destination bikini tops, fancy swim wear will come in handy. (Bollywood Country)
You should never ignore heart attack symptoms, especially while travelling, as researchers say cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading causes of death among people on the move.
The study, presented at Acute Cardiovascular Care 2019 in Malaga, Spain, indicates that the long-term outcomes after a heart attack while travelling can be good if one gets prompt treatment.
“If you are travelling and experience heart attack symptoms, such as pain in the chest, throat, neck, back, stomach or shoulders that lasts for more than 15 minutes, call an ambulance without delay,” said co-author Ryota Nishio from the Juntendo University in Japan.
“Long distance travel may lead to conditions like dehydration, leg cramps, electrolyte imbalance, fatigue, motion sickness and fluid shifting due to venous blood pooling that can precipitate a CVD,” Deepak Khurana, senior cardiac surgeon at Yatharth Hospital in Noida, told IANS.
For the study, the researchers included 2,564 patients who had a heart attack and received rapid treatment with a stent (percutaneous coronary intervention or PCI) between 1999 and 2015.
A total of 192 patients (7.5 per cent) were found to be travelling at the time of suffering the heart attack. Patients who were travelling were younger and had a higher prevalence of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), a serious type of heart attack in which a major artery supplying blood to the heart gets blocked, the study said.

Heart attacks during a trip were associated with 42 per cent lower risk of long-term all-cause death than those that occurred in residents, after adjusting for many factors such as age, sex, hypertension and diabetes.
“It is important that when you are over the immediate emergency phase and return home, consult your doctor to find out how you can reduce your risk of a second attack by improving your lifestyle and potentially taking preventive medication,” Nishio said. (IANS)
