PMID:  16381268     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of negative pressure bilateral pulmonary edema in a 28 years old healthy female patient, scheduled for diagnostic pelvic laparoscopy for infertility. Following extubation and apparent recovery from anesthesia, she had strong inspiratory efforts due to airway obstruction caused by coughing and laryngeal spasm, that lead to negative pressure bilateral pulmonary edema. The pulmonary edema disappeared within few hours. She was breathing spontaneously through CPAP system (mask-bag-expiratory valve). Diuretics and lungs physiotherapy helped in controlling patient's complication.
