Predictors of ear barotrauma in aircrews exposed to simulated high altitude.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Ear barotrauma is an adverse effect related to hypobaric exposure. Ear, nose, and throat (ENT) diseases are risk factors for barotrauma in aircrews trained in a hypobaric chamber, but excluding affected subjects from exposure does not abolish the risk in asymptomatic trainees. We investigated other possible predictors, including history of ENT… (More)
