To clear or equalise pressure between ears and sinuses after change of pressure, e.g. after diving
The Valsalva manoeuvre is performed by attempted exhalation against a closed airway, usually done by closing one's mouth and pinching one's nose shut while expelling air. Variations can also be used in medical examination as a test of cardiac function and autonomic nervous control of the heart.
