PMID:  1107768     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The occurrence of massive air embolism in a neonate during treatment with intermittent positive-pressure respiration and positive end expiratory pressure is reported as a note of caution. It is possible that this complication may indeed be more common. Careful post-mortem examinations (including radiological examinations) are advocated in order that the true incidence of this devastating event shall be known.
