Endotracheal tube rupture, accidental extubation, and tracheal avulsion: three airway catastrophes associated with significant decrease in leak pressure

R. M. Spear, R. A. Sauder, D. G. Nichols

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report three unusual, catastrophic cases in which a significant decrease in leak pressure around a tracheal tube was noted before the discovery of the ultimate airway problem. A brief review of potential causes of a decrease in leak pressure is included and management of these difficult cases is discussed.
