|Title:||Patient-induced complications of Heimlich flutter valve|
|Citation:||Chest, 1998; 113(3):838-839|
|Abstract:||Heimlich flutter valves have gained widespread acceptance in the treatment of pneumothorax. However, some features of their design may predispose them to inadvertent misuse. A case of tension pneumothorax is described which resulted from the insertion of a drinking straw into the Heimlich flutter valve assembly.|
