• Barosinusitis  Pain, bleeding of sinuses; flying with sinusitis may cause a spread to the CNS
• Deep vein thrombosis  See “Economy class syndrome”
• Heart attack  Related to anxiety, sprinting to connecting flight, decreased cabin O2 ergo hypoxia, decreased cabin humidity
• Musculoskeletal Low back pain and injuries
• Nausea and vomiting
• Syncope/vertigo  Possibly related to decreased cabin O2 leading to hypoxia
