Aspiration av alifatiska kolväten kan ge livshotande lungpåverkan hos småbarn

Åkeson, Jonas LU ; Karlson-Stiber, Christine; Fredriksson, Birgitta; Wattsgård, Cecilia LU and Lundholm, Birgitta (1990) In Läkartidningen 87(51-52). p.4420-4423
Abstract
Ingestion of aliphatic hydrocarbons--even in small amounts--can cause severe respiratory distress in children. Such accidents are becoming increasingly common in Sweden. A case of severe hydrocarbon ingestion is reported, where a 16-month-old boy, initially treated with mechanical ventilation for respiratory distress, subsequently developed a reversible radiological complication, pneumatocele. Patients at risk of severe hydrocarbon intoxication can be identified by careful evaluation of their history and continuous clinical observation. Controlled ventilation should be instituted early in respiratory distress, and any radiological changes followed up in a few weeks.
