Blown Away

The EM:RAP July Introduction by Stuart Swadron MD and Jan Shoenberger MD talks about a case that will blow you away…pneumomediastinum presentation and causes. Can you answer these questions:

  1. Can pnuemomediastinum occur after forceful expiration?
  2. Can ECG findings be distorted due to the presence of subcutaneous air?

You will, once you listen to the MP3 file or read the PDF article.
