While onboard, there are strong possibilities that members
of the crew inhale harmful fumes which put their life in jeopardy causing
edemas. The ORL is able to reach a conclusion either via the description of
symptoms or by evaluating the examination of the patient with the endoscope
provided in the medical suitcase. Aside from throat related incidents, crew
members might suffer from ear and nose problems which can immediately be
handled by the ORL.
