Abstract
We report the case of a 71-year-old female patient with bronchiectasis who developed temporary partial upper airway obstruction and intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) caused by the movement of accumulated secretions from the lower respiratory tract to the upper respiratory tract because of a change in position. Changes in respiratory dynamics and the modification of extrinsic PEEP need to be considered in such patients with intrinsic PEEP.
Key Words: airway management, airway obstruction, intrinsic PEEP.
