Title: Sinus Barotrauma In Divers.
Author: Fagan, P; McKenzie, BJ; Edmonds, C
Abstract: Sinus barotrauma is a dysbaric disorder affecting aviators, caisson workers and divers. It is the clinical sequel of Boyle's Law as it affects the sinus air spaces, and is second in incidence only to middle ear barotrauma as an occupational disease of divers. Most of our knowledge of sinus barotrauma is derived from aviation medicine, with little more than anecdotal information about its clinical manifestations in divers. No detailed study of sinus barotrauma in divers has previously been published. Sinus barotrauma may occur during descent, ascent or both.
