Abstract
Pulmonary vascular air embolism is a rare, and almost invariably fatal complication of positive pressure ventilation of newborn infants. There have only been 53 cases described in the world literature to date. We have experienced a case of pulmonary vascular air embolism in a premature newborn as a complication of mechanical ventilation during the course of respiratory distress syndrome. The pathophysiology and clinical characteristics of pulmonary vascular air embolism is discussed and a brief review of the related literature is presented.
Key Words: Pulmonary Vascular Air Embolism, Newborn
