I thought this article was quite interesting, it's based on two patients with chronic pneumothorax and testing their safety for long haul flying.

Great find Abbey!

I have been looking for something like this! Very interesting read. Also frustrating, realizing how little information there is available to us unless we really are digging for it.

Good to know they have at least done some studies, and it's good to know they tested these people over a period of many flights to see how they reacted.

One day hopefully they will have more studies done with people with years of being stable, and then taking a long flight and seeing what happens.
