J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1997;40(3):318-326.   Published online March 15, 1997
Purpose : Pulmonary interstitial emphysema(PIE) is a common and serious complication of mechanical ventilation in infants with hyaline membrane disease. This abnormal collection of gases has two basic roentgenographic features; linear and cyst-like radiolucencies. High positive inspiratory pressure was found to be the most significant parameter associated with development of fatal pulmonary interstitial emphysema. Without prompt conservative management such as lowering peak inspiratory...
