Abstract

Background: Barotrauma causes damage to an enclosed cavity within the human body due to pressure changes inside and outside the body. This research aims to identify the effect of medical history and compressor on barotrauma.
Design and method: The case-control design and total sampling methods were used to obtained data from 174 respondents.
Results: The bivariate result showed that the value of medical history was at p=0.006, OR=2.47, with a compressor value of p=0.000, OR=16.29. Furthermore, the multivariate analysis indicated that the compressor has a dominant factor at OR= 7.175.
Conclusions: Both medical history and compressor affected barotrauma incidence, with compressor as the most dominant factor.
