This case involves a patient with a history of alcohol abuse that presented to the hospital with complaints of abdominal pain. She was admitted to the ICS for management of alcohol withdrawal, put on non-invasive ventilation, and given a sedative. She was eventually found unresponsive and taken off the ventilator. An X-ray revealed the patient’s lung had collapsed due to a severe fluid buildup. The patient went into cardiac arrest resulting in irreparable brain damage. It was alleged that brain damage resulted from aspiration. A pulmonology expert was sought to opine on the protocol for monitoring patients requiring respiratory assistance in the ICU.
