Abstract

Pneumothorax and pneumomediastinum are life-threatening conditions especially in critically ill patients. One of the most common situations in which they occur is prolonged invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilation with high end-expiratory pressure. Probably due to the high number of patients with SARS-CoV-2 respiratory infection being treated with mechanical ventilation, increasing number of pulmonary barotrauma cases have been reported.
