Barotrauma Of The Ears

(Barotitis media; Aerotitis media)

Rapid pressure changes may cause barotrauma to the ears with ear pain or ear drum damage.

Thus prevails on both sides of the eardrum the same air pressure, the respiratory gases must be able to move freely between nasopharyngeal space and the middle ear. If the pressure equalization is hampered by an upper respiratory infection, an allergy or other disorder of Eustachian tube function, changes in the ambient pressure to vacuum (recovery of the eardrum) or excess pressure in the middle ear (bulging of the eardrum). In a vacuum, a Flüssigkeitstranssudat can form in the middle ear. With increasing pressure gradient can cause bruising and bleeding in subepithelial mucosa and eardrum. Very large differences in pressure can cause bleeding into the middle ear, eardrum cracks and a perilymph fistula in round or oval window.

Very large differences in pressure can cause bleeding into the middle ear, eardrum cracks and a perilymph fistula in round or oval window. Symptoms of Fliegerotitis include severe pain, conductive hearing loss, and if a perilymph fistula is present, sensorineural hearing loss and / or dizziness. By a rapid increase of the external Lufdrucks such as in a rapid increase in pressure (eg. As in diving) or pressure drop (z. B. for air travel) are usually the symptoms worsen A sensorineural hearing loss or vertigo at a pressure drop indicates a perilymph fistula, speak during the ascent of deep-sea divers for formation of air bubbles in the inner ear during the same symptoms.
