High-pressure injection injury to the hand with resulting pneumomediastinum: a case report

We present a case of a 46-year-old patient with a high-pressure injection injury from SCUBA equipment who developed pneumomediastinum. Why Should an Emergency Physician Be Aware of This?: High pressure injection injuries are rare and may have significant morbidity. Injection injuries from air are uncommon, may be managed differently than injection with other materials, and may be associated with unique complications.
