Aeroembolism (кинектоз, or a disease of the movement) - dysfunction of a vestibular mechanism.
The expressed forms of aeroembolism are shown by dizziness, weight in the head, a headache, muscular weakness, drowsiness, fear, a chill, deterioration in sight, distortion of flavoring feelings, dryness in a mouth, nausea, vomiting, pallor or the face reddening increased by sweating, etc.
Airplane "bumpiness", i.e. vertical sharp throws down and up, maneuvers and "roving" of the airplane cause aeroembolism. Roving - movement of the aircraft from the set direction of flight under the influence of a side wind.
Treatment of Aeroembolism:
For the prevention of aeroembolism it is necessary to recommend good rest before flight, not plentiful meal in 1-2 hours prior to a departure (the departure on an empty stomach reduces resistance to aeroembolism twice). In flight it is possible: 1) to cast away the head and a trunk back, to close eyes and to try to fall asleep (to doze off); 2) to suck lollipops; 3) to drink a cup of tea or coffee; 4) to direct a stream of cold air to the person; 4) to use breath by oxygen; 5) to apply pharmacological means: isopromethazine (Pipolphenum) - 25 mg; Dibazolum - 20 mg, a pyridoxine (B6 vitamin) - 100 mg. Above efficiency of complex drug will throw, including isopromethazine, Dibazolum, a pyridoxine in the doses stated above and sodium benzoate caffeine - 200 mg; and also Plavephinum and феплавин. Efficiency of all drugs accepted before flight is twice higher, than accepted at the beginning of development of aeroembolism.
