The ENT in operations... The study of the vestibular function



The ENT in operations... The study of the vestibular function



Revue de Laryngologie - Otologie - Rhinologie 130(3): 205-207



The study of the vestibular function in helicopter pilots shows excellent optokinetic gains, predominant visual entrances, but alterations of otolithic evoked potentials which are sensitive to flight aeronautical constraints such as noise and vibrations. These results would deserve to be compared with those obtained in the youngest having flown less than 150 hours because the compensations are made around 100 to 150 hours of flight. Aboard the nuclear submarines, the ENT remains one of the main suppliers of pathologies. Consultations concern the most common pathology: Nose bleeding, infections of nasopharynx, otitis. The conditions of temperature and hygrometry, crowding and closed environment are indeed ideal for the development of infectious pathologies. They represent about 30 to 40 consultations by patrol of 70 days, and arise mostly at the beginning of mission, because of the importance of the viral constituent. Groups of particularly exposed staffs were not observed.
