Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Aerotoxic syndrome is a term describing the alleged short-term and long-term ill-health effects that are attributed to exposure to cabin air that has been contaminated with atomized engine oils and other chemicals. With the exception of the new Boeing 787, the air in a jet or turboprop aircraft cabin is typically supplied by bleed air from the aircraft's engines. Several advocacy groups have claimed that some aircrew and passengers have been made ill by toxins in engine oil that can enter the air supply. As of 2009 this syndrome is not officially recognized in aviation medicine.show more
