Resumen

GUTIERREZ N, MÓNICA et al. Massive ammonia inhalation: Report of two cases. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.95-99. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482014000200006.

Ammonia (NH3) is an irritant and corrosive gas whose inhalation at high concentrations mainly occurs during agricultural and industrial activities, as occupational accidents. The extent and severity of the damage depends on the concentration and time of exposure to the toxic, which can cause skin, eye, respiratory and life-threatening injuries. We present two cases of patients acutely exposed to high concentrations of NH3. Both patients survived to the acute phase of the respiratory injury, but developed chronic lung derangements.

Palabras clave : Ammonia inhalation; acute lung damage; bronchiectasis; diffuse bronchiolitis.
