Whereas flow and mouth pressure (Pmo) are easily measured at the mouth, alveolar pressure is derived from the mouth pressure-time transient Pmo(t) during a brief interruption of tidal breathing.
The causative events that led to pneumothorax in our case are hypothesized to be as follows: forceful coughing and severe bucking increased alveolar pressure causing rupture of the alveoli;11 from there, air traveled along the pulmonary vascular sheaths, where it entered the mediastinum and formed pneumomediastinum; then, the air dissected through the Jinguang Du et al.
The presumed patho-physiology of acute cocaine medicated lung injury is believed to arise from a sequence of events that begin with inhalation induced bronschospasm, increased alveolar pressure followed by alveolar rupture leading to interstitial emphysema and pneumomediastinum (3).
The flow-interruption method was based on the idea that during the transient interruption of expired airflow, alveolar pressure would equilibrate with mouth pressure (Chowienczyk et al, 1991).
The pressure at the end of inspiration with airway closed, reflects the best estimate of peak alveolar pressure, which is an important indicator of alveolar distension.
It is a limitation of our study that we did not measure alveolar pressure and plateau pressure.
