Tension pneumopericardium in an infant is a rare but potentially fatal event. In the present study, we describe a new technique to drain the air from the pericardial sac of a critically ill baby. We performed this drainage via the subxiphoid approach in the Trendelenburg position rather than the anti-Trendelenburg position.
