Abstract

Unilateral malignant hyperinflation of the lungs during positive pressure mechanical ventilation was described during aggressive respiratory therapy of unilateral lung disease or in situations of significant difference in compliance between the two lungs. We report a case of malignant hyperinflation of the nondependent lung during chest surgery. The differential diagnosis and treatment with differential lung ventilation are described.
