Abstract

Negative pressure pulmonary edema is a recognized complication of airway obstruction, particularly after endotracheal extubation. The application of oxygen therapy and continuous positive airway pressure with the administration of diuretics under a rapid diagnosis usually clears pulmonary edema. We report a case of 61-year-old man who developed negative pressure pulmonary edema following extubation after an endoscopic submucosal dissection under general anesthesia.
