Spontaneous tension pneumomediastinum in young child complicating bronchopneumonia successfully managed with high frequency ventilator

Muhammad Asif Ghori, Ibrahim Al Helali, Ibrahim Albenhassan, Ahmad Al Qarni.

Spontaneous pneumomediastinum means air in mediastinum is usually associated with a sudden formation of pressure gradient between the alveolus and surrounding tissue, resulting from either an over inflation of the alveoli or a reduction of interstitial pressure. Spontaneous mediastinum is predisposed to asthma, respiratory tract infections, or situations reproducing the valsalva maneuver, uncommon in young children but potentially life threatening.

Key words: High frequency ventilator, Spontaneous tension pneumomediastinum
