User : when swimming in the deep end of a pool is it possible to rupture ear drum in a normal 50m pool?
User : if swimming towards the bottom in the deep end
the possibility is there but it is very unlikely in normal individuals
User : does the ear equalise itself if the human does not
User : attempt to try to equalise when needed
the pressure on either side of ear drum do equalises
Doctor : it has inherent mechanism
but if the adjusting mechanism fails
