Abstract
A case of severe ventilatory failure with PaCOz, as high as 197 torr is reported
postoperatively in a 3-year-old male patient who has received open heart surgery for total
correction of known TOF (Tetralogy of Fallot). Many procedures were tried to treat the
ventilatory failure but failed. Eventually we noticed malfunctioning of the humidifier assembled
in Bear Cub infant pressure-limited ventilator. Vigorous endotracheal suction combined with
saline irrigation improved the ventilatory failure successfully.
