What causes temporary deafness in high altitude flying aircrafts?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
The Eustachian tube keeps the pressure in the middle ear the same as the outside air pressure. It is this pressure that changes when flying in an aircraft, thereby causing a temporary deafness for few seconds.
