  • Each of these possible complications of chest tube removal can cause respiratory compromise and necessitate intervention. (
  • Historically, a postremoval film was obtained shortly after chest tube removal to rule out any complications. (
  • Perioperative blood loss, length of surgical procedures, chest tube durations, postoperative complications and length of hospital stays served as secondary endpoints. (
  • Demographic data, diagnoses of patients, duration of the procedures and percutaneous tracheostomy complications were evaluated. (
  • One-lung ventilation time, histology of the available lung parenchyma specimens, early postoperative complications, length of chest tube drainage and hospital stay, recurrence rate, and a score for patient satisfaction with treatment based on the sum of postoperative pain, dependent-arm mobilization, and return to full activity subscores were evaluated. (
  • Clinical efficacy (considered as lack of new procedures during follow up), complications, drainage duration, hospital stay and quality of life (general and specific questionnaires) were also analyzed. (
  • Compare the effect of these two methods on operative time and duration of postoperative complications, including chest tube drainage and length of hospitalization for these patients. (
  • Growing evidence has demonstrated that MIS lobectomy, including video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and robotic-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS), is associated with fewer postoperative complications such as arrhythmias and pneumonia and shorter chest tube duration and length of hospital stay [2 -8]. (
  • The post-operative management of air leaks requires a chest tube which may lead to longer hospitalization, further medical complications, and increased costs. (
  • Intra-operative and 3-months postoperative data were assessed for the presence and persistence of air leaks, chest tube duration, the length of hospital stay, and complications. (
  • Benefits of this minimally invasive surgery include reduced chest tube duration, lower risk of complications and wound infections, less blood loss, less pain and shorter hospital stays. (
  • Asthma is an inflammation and obstruction of the bronchial tubes - the passages that allow air to enter and leave the lungs. (
  • During an asthma attack, the muscles that surround the bronchial tubes constrict, narrowing the air passages and making it extremely difficult to breathe. (
  • Scientists have found that rapid breathing associated with strong emotions, like panic, can cause bronchial tubes to constrict. (
  • Figure A shows the location of the lungs and bronchial tubes. (
  • The illness is typified by inflamed bronchial tubes, thick mucus in the chest, cough, and a whistling sound when breathing. (
  • Bronchitis refers to the inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the bronchial tubes within the lungs. (
  • Excessive smoking irritates the bronchial tubes and lowers their resistance, so that they become vulnerable to germs breathed in from the atmosphere. (
  • Spirometry, one of the first tests performed on individuals with lung disease, measures the extent to which bronchial tubes have narrowed. (
  • In noncardiac patients with a CT, tube reinsertion is uncommon, and tube replacement is secondary to symptoms. (
  • It was clinical symptoms that prompted repeat chest radiography. (
  • Based on the findings of this study, we have changed our practice guidelines to not obtain a chest radiograph after removal of a chest tube unless there is increased pain, respiratory symptoms, or clinical concern. (
  • Only two patients (0.7%) had clinically significant symptoms requiring intervention (reintubation and chest tube replacement), both of whom had benign initial postremoval radiography results. (
  • Other common symptoms are wheezing and a rattling sound in the chest. (
  • A secondary goal is to develop the diagnostic skills necessary to evaluate patients with common symptoms such as chest pain or abdominal pain. (
  • The patient was then treated with oxygen therapy and placement of a chest tube on the fifth left intercostal space, with subaquatic seal (without suction), leading to improved symptoms. (
  • [1] Other symptoms include coughing up mucus , wheezing , shortness of breath , fever , and chest discomfort. (
  • [2] The cough may persist for several weeks afterward with the total duration of symptoms usually around three weeks. (
  • In the earlier stages of parapneumonic effusion formation (mild symptoms, short duration), institution of appropriate empiric antibiotics, based on the patient's age and the organisms and sensitivities commonly present in the community, may discourage a small effusion from developing into a complicated parapneumonic effusion. (
  • The mean duration of symptoms prior to presentation and hospital stay was 97.4 and 38days, respectively. (
  • It is an uncommon condition that often presents with sudden onset of symptoms, including chest pain, neck pain, dyspnea, or signs of subcutaneous emphysema. (
  • Asthma is a lung disease characterized by inflammation and remodeling of the airways, which leads to airflow obstruction and symptoms of wheeze, chest tightness, cough and dyspnea. (
  • Other symptoms are hoarseness, pain in chest and loss of appetite. (
  • At the Surgical Service at Boston Children's Hospital, chest tubes are most often removed at the bedside by the general surgery nurse practitioner or resident using a standard chest tube removal protocol unless otherwise specified. (
  • Doctors insert a tiny camera and surgical instruments into your chest through small incisions. (
  • Cardiothoracic surgery (also known as thoracic surgery) is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax (the chest)-generally treatment of conditions of the heart ( heart disease ) and lungs ( lung disease ). (
  • The highly competitive Surgical Education and Training (SET) program in Cardiothoracic Surgery is six years in duration, usually commencing several years after completing medical school. (
  • With current surgical technique and postoperative care, it is the duration of these leaks that often dictates the length of hospitalization. (
  • She said her hospital is now in the process of adopting the use of the NSAID during all post-surgical chest tube removal in all pediatric patients. (
  • Conclusions: Early identification of TE and aggressive management with antibiotics or antituberculosis, drainage with chest tube, and surgical treatment when closed tube drainage fails is recommended to improve the high mortality and morbidity. (
  • Medical records were reviewed to exclude cases of traumatic and iatrogenic pneumomediastinum, including those associated with chest trauma, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, mechanical ventilation, or any surgical/interventional procedures. (
  • Patients and Methods: Demographic, clinical and microbiological data on children with thoracic empyema undergoing drainage by chest tube thoracostomy alone or with antiseptic lavage-irrigation were obtained from 2 thoracic surgical centers from September 2008 to December 2014. (
  • In summary, conservative medical management with the use of chest tubes for these 98 children with empyema resulted in a mortality rate of 1.0%, and should be considered as an effective alternative to the surgical management of patients presenting with this complication. (
  • Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is an invasive procedure in which a tracheostomy tube is placed after establishing a tracheal stoma through dilatation method, rather than the surgical creation of a tracheal stoma. (
  • The authors stated that a higher ELV/TLV value was associated with the prolongation of the duration of chest tube drainage, and that lung cancer recurrence was predominantly found in patients with higher ELV/TLV values, regardless of their surgical outcomes. (
  • It is easy to get excited about intubation, chest tubes or even surgical airways. (
  • Medela Healthcare today announces research results that prove patients managed with digital drainage system Thopaz™ had a significantly shorter air leak duration, chest tube duration and postoperative length of stay compared to those managed with traditional devices. (
  • The selective omission of CXR after chest tube removal in less severely injured, nonventilated patients does not adversely affect outcomes or increase reintervention rates. (
  • Omission of routine CXR after chest tube removal in selected patients decreases hospital charges without compromising patient safety or clinical outcomes. (
  • Omission of routine postoperative chest tube removal CXR is safe, and removal of chest tubes in postoperative cardiac patients is not an indication for CXRs. (
  • Four patients (4.2%) had a pneumothorax after chest drain removal, one patient required insertion of a further chest drain for pneumothorax, and one patient required an additional drain because of recurrent pleural effusion. (
  • This study supports the general consensus in the literature that a postremoval chest radiograph is not indicated after removal of a chest tube in most pediatric patients. (
  • There may be some patients for whom a chest radiograph is indicated if there is clinical concern for pneumothorax or reaccumulation of pleural fluid. (
  • Our study showed that only 2 out of 281 patients had a clinically significant event after chest tube removal, and the postremoval film did not identify the problem. (
  • Based on the findings of this study, we identified 18 of 281 (6.4%) patients who had any change in chest radiograph after removal of the chest tube. (
  • Based on these data, the general surgery team at Boston Children's Hospital implemented a practice change, effective January 1, 2016, to limit routine chest radiography after removal of a chest tube to patients with any change in respiratory status, any other clinical concern, or provider/surgeon request. (
  • Omitting postremoval chest radiography as a change in practice will provide significant cost savings and reduce exposure to radiation in pediatric patients. (
  • There were 170 patients who had a single-view chest radiograph at a cost of $254, and 111 patients who underwent two-view chest radiographs at a cost of $448. (
  • These data will contribute to the reduction in the number of chest radiographs for pediatric patients, contributing to the overall wellness of these young patients. (
  • This would contribute to the evidence supporting the clinicians' decision making about which patients may need consideration for chest radiography after removal of a chest tube. (
