I have to say that I don't necessarily agree with all the discussion on that case. Most sub-q emphysema comes not from air leaking from the surface of the lung. Most of the time it is due to air tracking back up a bronchovascular sheath, into the mediastinum, then fracturing the medistinal pleura and tracking into the sub-cutaneous fascia.
