Abstract
Atelectasis or collapse of lung is a common complication following surgery. Atelectsis also occurs during anesthesia but profound pulmonary collapse is uncommon. We experienced acute lung collapse of entire left lung and right upper lobe after endotracheal suction following endotracheal intubation. Mucoid secretions and blood clots were aspirated through the bronchoscopy. The possible cause of lung collapse is described.
Key Words: Atelectasis; Lung collapse; Complication; Secretion; Denitrogen absorption atelectasis
