A 40-year-old man who developed acute pulmonary edema following relief of upper airway obstruction is presented. The mechanism of pulmonary edema associated with upper airway obstruction is complex and not fully understood. It is therefore difficult to predict which patients will develop pulmonary edema during or after the relief of obstruction.
