Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During suicidal hanging, death takes few minutes to occur. Patient, if rescued, may develop respiratory distress, pulmonary oedema, convulsions, raised intra cranial pressure and unconsciousness immediately after incidence. We report a young male of suicidal hanging, brought to hospital in unconscious state with decerebrating movements. He developed pulmonary oedema after two hours of incidence. He was resuscitated and treated successfully.
