reasons for motion sickness

Very often children suffer

Very often children suffer

Motion sickness is caused by monotone and uniformvehicle vibrations. The main reasons for this state are rooted in violations of the human vestibular apparatus. It is hidden deep in the inner ear, and works on the principle of the pendulum, sending signals to the brain whenever a person carries the slopes or any active movement. If in the mechanism failures occur, the person begins to experience nausea, dizziness, and the urge to vomit at the slightest movement. This occurs most often when the received visual information does not coincide with the data supplied by the vestibular apparatus. For example, riding a bus person knows that he is sitting in a chair attached to a durable floor and rolling on wheels on a level road. However, fluctuations in the car on the road, potholes in the road, sharp movements of the driver is introduced into the brain delusion, and the person feels a particular and very uncomfortable feeling of motion sickness.

Very often the children swayed in transport. This is because the child's imperfect, not fully formed by the vestibular apparatus, which can not cope with the incoming data can not correctly interpret the information and to "compensate" the movement. Formed vestibular apparatus for a long time, in some children this process is fully completed only in 12-15 years.



There are people who swayed in any kind of movement, while others only react to certain types of pitching. This made it possible to divide the motion sickness on these types:

  1. Seasickness.
  2. Rocking the plane.
  3. Motion sickness in the land transport.

This condition can be overcome and a healthy person,which is generally not prone to motion sickness. Most often this is due to the fact that a person is very tired and is in a state of extreme stress, hungry, sick, ill, or have just recovered from a serious illness, pregnancy, if traveling for a long time, and transportation thoroughly "chatters". Even with a healthy vestibular system may cause the classic symptoms - nausea, vomiting, dizziness and loss of consciousness. If motion sickness, unlike food poisoning, the first portion of vomiting does not relieve the unpleasant condition. Vomiting lasts up until the pitching does not stop, and even for some time after that. Vomiting can be unrestrained and cause serious suffering to the patient.
