First thing is to check with his cardiologist. My understanding is yes we can use one. Yes we MUST take precautions like limit the time in one. I like to have my warden with me, strictly for the safety of course. :)

I had one and used when alone set to about 99-100 degrees. My wife preferred 105+ degrees. That didn't agree with me. So we got rid of it.

Tow,

Understand that hot water such as that found in jaccuzzi's, INTENSIFY the effects of alcohol and drugs .... AND I DON'T MEAN MAYBE. The higher the temperature, and the greater the immersion, the greater the effect.

EXTREME care needs to be exercised when you take pharmaceuticals. For instance, if you take a drug that reduces your blood pressure, a jaccuzzi will (not "can") reduce your blood pressure more dramatically. If you take a medication which reduces your heart rate, the jaccuzzi will reduce it even further.

It is recommended that with some medications, hot tubs be avoided all together !

110 or 115 is incredibly high, the highest most can be set to is about 105. Are you sure about that temperature?

yes...it goes up to 120 depending on how its set...shows up in the temperature gauge.....but im not 100% sure how accurate it is lol...we cleaned it out recently and refilled it....and set it at 95 but it was actually too cold for the baby to go in so i think the temperature gauge is off.....im having a service on it soon lol..

I have found that 102 or 103 is ideal. Maybe get a floaty thermometer for a second opinion on the temperature?
