Traumatic tracheobronchial laceration can be potentially life-threatening and pose significant challenges for anaesthetic management. We would like to share our experience of managing a patient who had traumatic tracheal rupture, multiple rib fractures, bilateral pneumothorax and subcutaneous emphysema. Our presentation will briefly cover the challenges faced with regard to airway management and ventilation options for surgical repair.
