Hi, folks. My friend had an ear trauma few months ago. Now, he must go to a business trip. Since it is not so close, he is considering traveling by plane. I would like to know if a person with damaged middle air can travel by plane. What do you think? I would really appreciate your help.

Hello. I would not recommend your friend to travel by plane. When the plain takes off, the pressure descends from high to low. This makes air in the middle ear to expand. When the plane is landing, the opposite occurs. The air shrinks in the middle ear. This must have repercussions on the structures in the middle ear. In any case, he should ask for a ENT specialist’s opinion. I hope this helps. Bye!
