Abstract

Suicidal hanging usually leads to death within a few minutes. The patient, if rescued, may develop respiratory distress, pulmonary oedema, convulsions, raised intra cranial pressure and unconsciousness immediately after the incident.  We report a case of suicidal hanging in a young female, brought to hospital in a conscious state with restlessness and anxiety. She developed pulmonary oedema after twelve hours, and was resuscitated successfully.
