Could it be okay for a 51 year old man to travel via plane with a pulse rate of 35?

Perhaps: The answer to this question is more complicated than the information provided. If there are no symptoms and there is no atrioventricular block and the heart and circulation are otherwise normal and there is no brain or GI disease causing the low heart rate, then yes, it is probably safe.

No -- he needed to be cleared by his doctor and he might need a pacemaker -- the rate of :35 is too low and needs to be corrected

Get checked out.: You shouldn't take long to recover and your resting pulse is fast. Get thyroid checked along with your heart. Go see your doctor soon.
