Hanging is used in suicide worlwide for suicide. It is generally ends with sudden death.But if the person is reached in a short time after hanging attempt, the patient can be saved. But we may come across some medical problems like pulmonary edema, cervical vertebra instability, impaired cognitive functions. 28 year old female patient had been taken to our hospital after incomplete hanging attempt with suicide intention. While she was in our hospital she had pulmonary complication. She had mechanical ventilation need, We supported her wiht mechanical ventilation both invasively and noninvasively. After 4 days of mechanical ventilation support she was discharged to the psychiatry clinic without any sequel.
