Also called airplane ear or otic barotrauma, ear barotrauma occurs when a sudden change in air pressure causes an ear injury. Barotrauma is caused by a blockage in the ear’s eustachian tubes—from either air pressure or inflammation—and is common with air travel. The eustachian tubes run from the back of the middle ear to the back of the throat, balancing air pressure on both sides of the eardrum by allowing outside air into the middle ear. When air can’t get to the middle ear, pressure builds up behind the eardrum and creates unbalanced air pressure in the middle ear, sometimes causing discomfort and pain. In rare cases, this can damage the eardrum by bruising or even rupturing it.
We bring you this column about better hearing in order to provide our readers with information that we hope they will find interesting and helpful whether they already wear hearing instruments, or perhaps feel they may have an impairment and wish to explore their options.
P.S. Yawning, chewing gum, blowing your nose, and over-the-counter nasal decongestants are all ways to reduce the air pressure caused by ear barotrauma.
