According to a study in the journal Anaesthesia, commercial airline travelers suffer "significant" oxygen level drops in their bodies during flights. More than half of all passengers examined had oxygen levels 6 percent below the norm at the airplane's maximum altitude. Had these same passengers been in a hospital, many doctors would prescribe extra oxygen at those oxygen levels.
Belfast, Northern Ireland anesthetists measured oxygen levels both on the ground and at maximum altitude in 74 passengers between the ages of 1 and 78, none of whom had pre-existing cardiorespiratory problems or need doctor's permission to fly. The results could help explain why some airline passengers get sick during and after flights, experts says.
