Pulmonary Edema is a complication of acute upper airway obstruction secondary to laryngospasm. This serious complication is treated promptly to minimize the delayed morbidity and mortality among the patients. Acute pulmonary edema followed the event in minutes to hours and required ventilatory assistance to maintain oxygenation. All patients eventually respond to fluid restriction diuretics and steroids. We present a case of pulmonary edema that occured in a 37 years old healthy adult after extubation caused by a laryngospasm.
Key Words: Larynx; spasm; Lung; edema; Airway; extubation
