Abstract

We describe a case of tracheal rupture following an emergency intubation during cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This complication occurring during resuscitation has not apparently been reported previously. Possible causes during the management of cardiac arrest are discussed with references to previously described cases of tracheal rupture.
