The pigtail catheter for pleural drainage: a less invasive alternative to tube thoracostomy. (1/91)

BACKGROUND: Tube thoracostomy remains the standard of care for the treatment of pneumothoraces and simple effusions. This report describes a favorable experience with the 8.3 French pigtail catheter as a less invasive alternative to traditional chest tube insertion. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 109 consecutive pigtail catheter placements. Catheters were inserted under local anesthesia at the bedside without radiographic guidance. Pre- and post-insertion chest radiographs were reviewed to determine efficacy of drainage. RESULTS: Fifty-one of 109 patients (47%) were mechanically ventilated and 26 patients (24%) had a coagulopathy. There were no complications related to pigtail catheter insertion. Seventy-seven pigtail catheters were placed for pleural effusion and 32 for pneumothorax. Mean effusion volume decreased from 43 to 9 percent, and drainage averaged 2899 ml over 97 hours. Mean pneumothorax size diminished from 38 to 1 percent during an average 71-hour placement. Clinical success rates in the effusion and pneumothorax groups were 86 and 81 percent, respectively. CONCLUSION: The pigtail catheter offers reliable treatment of pneumothoraces and simple effusions and is a safe and less invasive alternative to tube thoracostomy.  (+info)

Complications of tube thoracostomy in trauma. (2/91)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the complication rate of tube thoracostomy in trauma. To consider whether this rate is high enough to support a selective reduction in the indications for tube thoracostomy in trauma. METHODS: A retrospective case series of all trauma patients who underwent tube thoracostomy during a 12 month period at a large UK teaching hospital with an accident and emergency (A&E) department seeing in excess of 125,000 new patients/year. These patients were identified using the hospital audit department computerised retrieval system supplemented by a hand search of both the data collected for the Major Trauma Outcome Study and the A&E admission unit log book. The notes were assessed with regard to the incidence of complications, which were divided into insertional, infective, and positional. RESULTS: Fifty seven chest drains were placed in 47 patients over the 12 month period. Seven patients who died within 48 hours of drain insertion were excluded. The commonest indications for tube thoracostomy were pneumothorax (54%) and haemothorax (20%); 90% of tubes were placed as a result of blunt trauma. The overall complication rate of the procedure was 30%. There were no insertional complications and only one (2%) major complication, which was empyema thoracis. CONCLUSION: This study reveals no persuasive evidence to support a selective reduction in the indications for tube thoracostomy in trauma. A larger study to confirm or refute these findings must be performed before any change in established safe practice.  (+info)

Malignant transient pleural transudate: a sign of early lymphatic tumoral obstruction. (3/91)

In the absence of a responsible comorbid condition, the transudative character of a pleural effusion in patients with malignancy does not imply a favorable outcome. We report a case of colon carcinoma metastatic to lung and pleura presenting as a bilateral transudative pleural effusion. Tumoral diffuse lymphatic permeation was identified as the cause of lymphatic obstruction on pleural and transbronchial biopsies. The transudative character of the pleural effusion was transient denoting its obstructive origin.  (+info)

Comparison of the effectiveness of some pleural sclerosing agents used for control of effusions in malignant pleural mesothelioma: a review of 117 cases. (4/91)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Management of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) has been an important clinical issue regardless of the treatment modality employed. We aimed to investigate the efficacy of oxytetracycline (OT), Corynebacterium parvum (CP), and nitrogen mustard (NM) in the management of pleural effusion associated with MPM. METHODS: One hundred and seventeen patients who had stage-2 MPM or over according to the Butchart staging system and unilateral or bilateral pleural effusion took part in the study. The patients received either OT (35 mg/kg), CP (7 mg), or NM (0.4 mg/kg) through a chest tube for pleurodesis. The association between several clinical parameters and patient survival was also investigated. RESULTS: OT was applied to 59, CP to 29 and NM to 29 cases. A statistical analysis of the results obtained by these agents have demonstrated that OT (30 days, 81%; 90 days, 76.2%) and CP (30 days, 86.2%; 90 days, 79.3%) led to a significantly higher rate of successful pleurodesis as compared to NM (30 days, 48.2%; 90 days, 41.3%; p <0.05). Although the procedure was generally well tolerated by the patients, the NM-treated group experienced significantly more nausea-vomiting (46.1%) and hypotension (35.8%) compared to patients who received OT (nausea-vomiting and hypotension 4.3%; p < 0.001) and CP (nausea-vomiting and hypotension 5.1%; p < 0.001). Furthermore, we found that thrombocytosis, chest pain and weight loss were significantly associated with poor prognosis, whereas epithelial type had a positive effect on survival. CONCLUSION: These results suggest that OT and CP may be used as effective sclerosing agents for pleurodesis in the control of pleural effusions associated with MPM, without major side effects.  (+info)

The value of small-bore catheter thoracostomy in the treatment of malignant pleural effusions. (5/91)

BACKGROUND: Malignant pleural effusions can cause severe debilitating symptoms and impair the quality of life. Treatment is often palliative, usually consisting of sequential thoracenteses or tube thoracostomy with or without sclerotherapy. Large-bore thoracostomy tubes have traditionally been used for drainage and sclerotherapy. More recently, the use of small-bore catheters has been studied. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy and safety of small-bore catheter (Pleuracan) thoracostomy combined with talc sclerotherapy for palliative treatment of malignant pleural effusions. METHODS: Between May 1998 and March 2000, 24 consecutive patients presenting at our inpatient clinic were studied. Follow-up radiography at the end of the 1st month (immediate response) and 3rd month (long-term follow-up) after talc pleurodesis was performed to assess the response rates. RESULTS: Of the 24 patients included, 2 patients did not show lung expansion after pleural drainage. Two patients died within 30 days after talc pleurodesis and 1 did not undergo 30-day postpleurodesis radiography. The remaining 19 patients made up the study group to assess the response rates (8 men, 11 women). Overall response rates of talc pleurodesis via small-bore catheter were found to be 84.2% [complete response (CR): 68.4%, partial response (PR): 15.8%] at 30-day and 78.6% (CR: 57.2%, PR:2 1.4%) at 90-day follow-up, respectively. One patient reported moderate pain during catheter placement. Four patients experienced mild to moderate pleuritic chest pain, shortness of breath, or both within 4 h after instillation. Seven of the 22 patients (31.8%) had a transient fever (< or =39.0 degrees C) 6-24 h after talc instillation that lasted less than 24 h and was successfully treated with acetaminophen. One patient had significant subcutaneous emphysema that resolved in 24 h. Four patients died because of tumor progress (2 patients in the 1st month and 2 patients between 30 and 90 days). CONCLUSION: Pleurodesis can successfully be performed via a small-bore catheter in patients with recurrent malignant pleural effusion. To validate the results of the study, a prospective randomized study, comparing this device (Pleuracan) and a 'standard' 16- to 24-french chest drain, should be performed.  (+info)

Repeated thoracentesis: an important risk factor for eosinophilic pleural effusion? (6/91)

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic pleural effusion (EPE) is a relatively rare clinical condition. Repeated thoracenteses (RTs) are normally considered a frequent cause of EPE. Yet, to our knowledge, there is no firm evidence (apart from anecdotal case reports) supporting such a statement. OBJECTIVE: To investigate potential relationships between the number, type (with or without pleural biopsy) and time elapsed between RTs and the number of eosinophils present in pleural fluid samples. METHODS: We reviewed retrospectively 273 pleural fluid samples belonging to 120 patients (79 males, 41 females), attended in our institution from 1992 to 2000, whose clinical management had required RTs. Apart from the anthropometric and clinical data of each patient, we included the following variables in the analysis: number of thoracenteses performed in each individual, number of pleural biopsies carried out at each thoracentesis and time between consecutive thoracenteses. We also recorded the total (and differential) leukocyte count, red blood cell count, as well as the main biochemical, microbiological and histological data of both the pleural fluid and peripheral blood samples. RESULTS: We did not observe any significant change in the percentage of eosinophils in relation to the number of thoracenteses performed per patient. This lack of relationship was also observed in the subgroup of patients who required one (or more) pleural biopsies (n = 111) (regardless of the number of biopsies). Our results suggest that RTs are not an important risk factor for the development of EPE, regardless of the time elapsed between two thoracenteses. CONCLUSION: We believe, therefore, that multiple punctures should not longer be considered a prevalent cause of pleural eosinophilia.  (+info)

Seldinger technique chest drains and complication rate. (7/91)

A short cut review was carried out to establish whether the seldinger "over the wire" technique is better than other techniques of pneumothorax drainage. Altogether 28 papers were found using the reported search, of which three presented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results, and study weaknesses of these best papers are tabulated. A clinical bottom line is stated.  (+info)

Emergent surgery for massive pulmonary embolism on the basis of clinical diagnosis. (8/91)

We treated a 52-year-old man for a large pleural effusion that had occurred after he fell from a ladder. Upon discharge from the hospital, the patient collapsed and was nonresponsive and hypotensive. We suspected the cause to be pulmonary embolism. When it became evident that this patient would die without emergent intervention, he was taken to surgery. A massive clot was removed from the left pulmonary artery, and multiple smaller clots were removed from both pulmonary arteries. The patient recovered and was discharged from the hospital on the 11th postoperative day. To our knowledge, this is the 1st report of pulmonary embolectomy being performed on the basis of clinical diagnosis alone.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: A study was undertaken to compare the efficacy of short term tube thoracostomy drainage with standard tube thoracostomy drainage before instillation of tetracycline for sclerotherapy of malignant pleural effusions.. METHODS: The study consisted of a randomised clinical trial in a sequential sample of 25 patients with malignant pleural effusions documented cytopathologically. Fifteen patients were randomly assigned to group 1 (standard protocol) and 10 to group 2 (short term protocol). Patients in group 1 had tube thoracostomy suction drainage until radiological evidence of lung re-expansion was obtained and the amount of fluid drained was , 150 ml/day, before tetracycline (1.5 g) was instilled. The chest tube was removed when the amount of fluid drained after instillation was , 150 ml/day. Patients in group 2 also had suction drainage, but the tetracycline (1.5 g) was instilled when the chest radiograph showed the lung to be re-expanded and the effusion drained, which was usually ...

Previously the risks of ICD insertion in patients on mechanical ventilation has been described [5] however we presented the above case due to frequent referral of patients on mechanical ventilation to us with harmful complications of tube thoracostomy. Prior to ICD insertion in a patient on mechanical ventilation, the PEEP must be turned off and the ventilator must be disconnected briefly during the introduction of the ICD. In ICD insertion deploying Seldinger technique the same steps need to be taken for introducing the guide wire as well as the chest tube. Any ICD breaching the lung parenchyma should be removed after insertion of another ICD in the pleural space.. We believe the BTS guidelines [1] require a new revision with the view to including the mechanical ventilation as a hazardous clinical setting in pre-drainage risk assessment section. Furthermore ICD insertion needs to be explained separately in self- and mechanical-ventilating patients along with considering the clinical settings ...

A chest drainage system is typically used to collect chest drainage (air, blood, effusions). Most commonly, drainage systems use three chambers which are based on the three-bottle system. The first chamber allows fluid that is drained from the chest to be collected. The second chamber functions as a water seal, which acts as a one way valve allowing gas to escape, but not reenter the chest. Air bubbling through the water seal chamber is usual when the patient coughs or exhales but may indicate, if continual, a pleural or system leak that should be evaluated critically. It can also indicate a leak of air from the lung. The third chamber is the suction control chamber. The height of the water in this chamber regulates the negative pressure applied to the system. A gentle bubbling through the water column minimizes evaporation of the fluid and indicates that the suction is being regulated to the height of the water column. In this way, increased wall suction does not increase the negative ...
Obviously, the one on top isnt going to get you very far. The bottom one (10 gauge 3 inch) should get into most pleural spaces.. But what if you dont have the right needle? Or what if the patient is massively obese and the longer needle wont even reach? Pushing harder may seem logical, but it doesnt work. You might be able to get the needle to reach to the pleural space, but the catheter wont stay in it.. Heres the trick. First, make the angiocatheter longer by hooking it up to a small (5 or 10cc) syringe. Now prep the chest over your location of choice (2nd intercostal space, mid-clavicular line or 5th intercostal space, anterior axillary line) and make a skin incision slightly larger than the diameter of the syringe. Now place the syringe and attached needle into the chest via your incision. It is guaranteed to reach the pleura, because you can now get the hub of the catheter down to the level of the ribs. Just dont forget to pull out the catheter once youve placed the chest ...
DISCUSSION. One of the first procedures in the area of thoracic surgery was open drainage of the pleural cavity, which was attributed to Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician who conducted pleural empyema drainage using a cautery and a metal tube. On the other hand, the study of thoracic trauma precedes these first historical reports. Three cases with this type of lesion have been described on papyrus and they are attributed to the Egyptian physician Imhotep, who lived between 3000 and 2500 B. C. In all these historical reports, there are references regarding the treatment of patients with thoracic trauma lesions. At the end of the last century, with the discovery of the infectious nature of many diseases, surgery gained ground in the field of postoperative complications by increasing control through the introduction of new techniques which were performed in aseptic and antiseptic conditions. This significantly reduced the occurrence of postoperative infections. The introduction of ...
The mechanics of ventilation relate to the negative intrathoracic pressure that draws air into the lungs during spontaneous respiration. This negative pressure is best maintained in the pleural space, which is the potential space between the parietal and visceral layers of the pleura.

Results: Seventy dogs and 13 cats underwent lateral thoracotomy. Sixty-two per cent of cats and 91 per cent of dogs survived to discharge. Survival to discharge was significantly lower in cats than dogs, for neoplastic than non-neoplastic disease and in older animals. Survival to discharge was higher in animals undergoing patent ductus arteriosus ligation than in those undergoing lung lobectomy or oesophageal surgery. Survival to discharge was not related to surgeon experience. The incidence of complications was not related to species, age, disease, duration of surgery, surgeon experience or duration of thoracostomy tube placement. A low complication rate (5 per cent) was associated with thoracostomy tubes. ...

This past weekend, I supervised a non-surgical trainee in the CVICU placing a thoracostomy pigtail catheter in a 6.8kg infant for pneumothorax. The patient was levocardic and the pneumo right-sided, large but without significant untoward hemodynamic or respiratory effect. With 10,000 hours under my belt, this was a chip shot situation. For the trainee, this was a first opportunity, the first hour. So we went through all the motions; the ultrasound guidance, the heavy sedation to near-intubation, the sterile draping with towels galore, the thorough time-out, and the multiple tentative passes of the introducer needle through the rib space, timed perfectly with the unnerving movements of the babys arms and legs. And the thoughts Im sure!

We find that allogeneic cardiospheres exert beneficial functional effects equal to those of syngeneic ones, without eliciting deleterious immune reactions. Cardiospheres improved global LV function as early as 7 days after transplantation, and attenuated adverse remodeling; these beneficial outcomes were maintained for at least 6 months, far beyond the time when allogeneic cardiospheres had been cleared (by 3 weeks). The sustained benefit, despite the evanescent survival of transplanted cardiospheres, indicates that ,3 weeks suffices to set in motion dynamic and durable mechanisms responsible for cardiac regeneration and repair (17), such as the capillary neoangiogenesis and the attenuation of collagen accumulation reported for the first time in our study. Moreover, the initial significant anti-remodeling effect was further enhanced by day 21, despite the disappearance of the allogeneic cardiospheres by that time, further supporting the role model hypothesis whereby cardiac-derived cells have ...

A report from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) entitled Building a sustainable future says this requires a whole-life approach to carbon assessment, not solely assessing the carbon used in construction but balancing this with the carbon used during the operational lifespan as well..

Figures from 2009 show that 22 per cent of the UKs total emissions came from transport with 62 per cent of that figure coming from passenger cars.. Looking forward, the population in parts of England is expected to grow by 20 per cent in the next 20 years and the Department for Transport estimates that by 2035 road use will have increased by between 40 and 50 per cent compared to 2003..

The tension pneumothorax was induced by continuously pumping air into the pleural cavity at 3 ml/kg/min of the anaesthetised but spontaneously breathing pigs. The influx of air continued throughout the study, also after the needle or drain was in place. The needle or drain was left in situ during the study. And all needles allowed flows of over 3 L/min, so more than adequate for releaving this pneumothorax. Apart from 2 pigs in the Cook Needle Thoracostomy group, all treated pigs survived the 4 hour observation period. So 100% survival in both the standard iv catheter needle decompression group and, not surprisingly, the chest tube group.. Where did they get the insufflattion rate from? I dont know. Does the insufflation rate accurately simulate a tension pneumothorax build-up in a spontaneously breathing patient/pig? Hard to say, but it sounds reasonable. It provided a slowish buildup of pressure, that took little relief to reverse. And I did like the measurements in this article. Graphs of ...
In this article, we will discuss about Tension Pneumothorax. So, lets gets started. Tension Pneumothorax. In tension pneumothorax, the mean pleural pressure is positive which means that air in the pleural cavity is under tension which causes compression collapse of the lung. It develops due to persistent air leak (air entry) inside the pleural cavity by the communication which opens during inspiration and closes during expiration preventing the air to escape. In this way, with each successive breath, the intrapleural pressure increases which eventually causes the mediastinum to shift to the opposite side and increased intrapleural pressure also puts pressure on the surrounding blood vessels.. There is decreased venous return to the heart and along with decreased cardiac output causing hypotension (cardiac tamponade) and cyanosis.. Clinical Features. Dyspnea, cough and acute exacerbation of pneumothorax symptoms. Trachea and mediastinum shifts to the opposite side. Decreased or absent breath ...
A 15-month-old female mixed breed dog was referred with a 3-day history of progressive dyspnoea and change in bark. Thoracic radiography showed pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum and atelectatic caudal lung lobes. Despite repeated thoracentesis and thoracostomy tube drainage, dyspnoea and cyanosis relapsed leading to the diagnosis of tension pneumothorax. An emergency exploratory thoracotomy showed a perforation on the ventral aspect of the right caudal lung lobe associated with a grass awn. Partial lobectomy was performed, followed by routine thoracotomy closure. The dog had an uneventful recovery and, on re-examination 2 and 6 months later, was normal.. ...
Local anesthetic (medical) thoracoscopy is used with increasing frequency by pulmonologists worldwide for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, notably in comorbid patients who may not be physiologically robust enough for general anesthesia. Understanding the complications that can arise and how to manage them is crucial for any physician performing this procedure. Reexpansion pulmonary edema is a rare but recognized complication of draining pleural effusions and pneumothoraces that has not been described previously in association with physician-led thoracoscopy. This case provides an opportunity for an overview of what is known about this unusual but potentially fatal condition. Data correlating ultrasonographic, radiographic, and clinical progression are also presented to highlight the potential usefulness of ultrasonography in identifying lung parenchymal abnormalities such as extravascular lung water.
Empyema is a devastating complication that is rarely seen in the postpneumonectomy setting. A 56-year-old man presented to us 24 years after pneumonectomy with a 15 days history of chest pain and shortness of breath. Physical examination revealed a fluctuant swelling at the thoracotomy site. Computed tomography scan showed a large fluid density mass in the left pneumonectomy space. Needle aspiration and video assisted thoracoscopic surgery was carried out and culture of the aspirated fluid grew Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The patient was discharged with the chest tubes in place. At 2 months follow-up, the patient presented with fever and continuous copious drainage of pus from empyema tubes. Piperacillin with tazobactam at 4.5 grams per day helped in the resolution of fever but the output from the empyema tubes continued. An open window thoracostomy was performed and the patient was discharged on standard dosage of cefixime and fusidic acid. Following this antibiotic regimen, he remained stable with
Tell me about the rotations outside the ED.. Trauma Surgery: Each resident spends one month during the first, second and third years on the trauma surgery service. The service, in general, consists of two interns, one rotating PGY-2 or PGY-3 Emergency Medicine resident, the trauma chief resident, and the surgical attending. The Emergency Medicine resident functions as an integral member of the trauma surgery team. This tends to be a very busy rotation that is on a nightfloat system. There are many opportunities to lead resuscitations and for procedures such as central and arterial line insertions, chest tube insertions, endotracheal intubation, and needle thoracostomy.. Pediatrics: We see a large number of children in our ED at CRMC that is growing day by day. Interns rotate in our outpatient pediatric clinic. During the PGY-2, residents work 16-18 shifts in the ED at Valley Childrens Hospital spread out over the year. In the fourth year our residents serve as the senior resident in the PICU at ...

AU - Green, T. P.. PY - 1986. Y1 - 1986. N2 - A 8.3-Fr modified pigtail catheter has been developed for chronic percutaneous drainage of pericardial effusions. Placement of this catheter using a modified Seldinger technique is virtually atraumatic. To test the safety and efficacy of this catheter for pleural drainage, it was used to manage eight collections of pleural fluid and nine pneumothoraces in a total of 12 infants and children. There were no placement complications. Fluid accumulations were satisfactorily drained in every instance. Pneumothoraces were treated definitively with a single catheter, except when a bronchopleural fistula was present. Percutaneous pigtail drainage of pleura fluid or air is simple, safe, effective, and substantially less traumatic than standard chest-tube ...

AU - Chanana, A. D.. PY - 1986/12/1. Y1 - 1986/12/1. N2 - The physiologic responses to acute pneumothorax were investigated in awake, standing sheep. Pleural pressure (Ppl) was raised in graded increments by injecting air from a 500 ml syringe into the pleural cavity of eight sheep to produce pneumothorax volumes of 0, 17, 35 and 45 ml.kg-1. At the maximum value of 45 ml.kg-1 (≃1,4000 ml), Ppl at end-expiration was raised to 10 ± 2 mmHg (mean ± SD) whereas end-inspiratory Ppl remained negative in half the sheep as the result of increased thoracic pressure swings. The most striking haemodynamic impairment was a 22% fall in stroke volume. Cardiac output, however, remained fixed at baseline values as a result of a 28% rise in heart rate. Although hypotension has been commonly held as a consequence of ...
Common treatment options for persistent air leaks involve continued tube thoracostomy drainage, pleurodesis, and surgical repair.1 Endobronchial valve placement remains the only endobronchial intervention available, with documented literature supporting use in air leaks.2-4 Although other interventions such as glue and coiling have been reported, the American College of Chest Physicians statement on prolonged air leaks in pneumothorax suggest avoidance of these endobronchial interventions.5 Our multidisciplinary team pursued endobronchial valve placement in this patient with a persistent air leak after recurrent pneumothorax in the setting of an advanced refractory malignancy. Standard management options appeared unfavorable due to his underlying comorbidities; prolonged chest tube drainage via an out-patient Heimlich valve was undesirable due to persistent neutropenia and infectious complications, and thoracoscopic surgery in transfusion-dependent acute myelogenous leukemia carries significant ...

This brief 15 minute scenario will feature a septic patient who is intubated due to decreasing mental status. We will then identify the acute ventilator emergency and solutions to fix this patient issue. In addition, we will take a more in-depth look at the patient models we have created using the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator. At the conclusion of the scenario, we will open the floor for a question and answer session with our Clinical Educator Amanda Dexter, MS, RRT, CHSE.. Its imperative that respiratory therapists be able to identify the symptoms of a tension pneumothorax quickly and efficiently, as it can be fatal in a matter of minutes, says IngMar Medicals Clinical Educator Kimber Haug, BS, RRT. Time is of the essence in this situation, especially if a physician or nurse needs to be called to the bedside to perform a needle decompression. Using IngMar Medicals RespiSim® System and RespiPatient® together, every aspect of this emergency event can be recreated - from our spontaneously ...
Federici, D.; Vavassori, A.; Mantovani, L.; Cattaneo, S.; Ciuffreda, M.; Seddio, F.; Galletti, L., 2013: Complete rightward cardiac luxation caused due to left tension pneumothorax
Results. Seven percent of all patients received a TT (5% unilateral, 2% bilateral). Ninety-seven percent of all patients with a TT were endotracheally intubated. The success rate for correctly placed chest tubes was 78%. Twenty-two percent of the chest tubes were misplaced (i.e., too far in the chest, twisted, or bent); half of those had to be corrected, with one needing to be replaced. There were no statistical differences in the frequency of Monaldi or Bülau positions, or the frequency of left or right chest TT. In addition, the two positions did not differ in misplacement rates or the need for intervention. Helicopter emergency medical services physicians used the Monaldi position significantly more frequently than the Bülau position. In-hospital physicians performing interhospital transfer used the Bülau position significantly more frequently, whereas ground emergency medical physicians had a more balanced relationship between the two positions. Tube thoracostomy had no influence on ...
Blunt trauma produces damage by direct injury, compression, and forces of acceleration or deceleration. Patients with significant blunt injury may require intubation and mechanical ventilation and invasive procedures such as tube thoracostomy. In general, victims of penetrating injuries who survive to reach the hospital often have better outcomes than those who have sustained blunt injuries. Blunt chest trauma from blast injuries is discussed in chapter 7, Bomb, Blast, and Crush Injuries. Penetrating chest injuries in the cardiac box (see Figure 262-1), an area bounded by the sternal notch, xiphoid process, and nipples, should be presumed cardiac or great vessel injuries until proven otherwise. ...
A 28-year-old male presents to your trauma bay already intubated, with multiple stab wounds to his chest and right upper extremity. He is hypotensive and tachycardic. An emergent right-sided tube thoracostomy produces no blood and no rush of air, but the patient is now gurgling around the endotracheal tube. An emergent introducer catheter is placed for additional access, and he is induced and re-intubated for concern for tube dislodgement. The patient then codes. A resuscitative thoracotomy is performed immediately, only to find no hemopericardium and a clean thorax. What went wrong?. Guidelines Are Guidelines. While trauma algorithms are a valuable tool to drive performance during high pressure or time-limited situations, and while both the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma and Western Trauma Association algorithms would have supported the described treatment and resuscitation of this patient, it is important to remember that guidelines are just that - guidelines. They must always ...

I remember a patient in his early 20s gasping for breath, telling me that he was going to die. After a quick exam, I removed the large shard of glass from his back, made the clinical diagnosis of a pneumothorax (collapsed lung) and gathered supplies from wherever I could locate them to insert a thoracostomy tube in him. He was a trooper; Ill never forget his courage. He allowed me to do this without any local anesthetic since none could be found. With his life threatening injuries I knew he was running out of time, and it had to be done. Quickly. Imagine my relief when I heard a big rush of air, and breath sounds again; fortunately, I was able to get him transported out. I immediately moved on to the next patient, .an asthmatic in status asthmaticus. We didnt even have the option of trying a nebulizer treatment or steroids, but I was able to get him intubated using a flashlight that I held in my mouth.

There are currently no applicable reviews in the Cochrane database. The PubMed Index was searched with the following strategy: (paediatric OR pediatric OR child) AND empyema AND (VATS OR thorascopic) AND (drain OR thoracostomy) AND (urokinase OR fibrinolysis OR fibrinolytics). This revealed 36 articles. All abstracts were reviewed; four prospective randomised studies were identified. We did not consider studies that compared VATS with chest drain without fibrinolytics1 or national surveillance studies.2 All references in these papers were reviewed, and no further relevant papers were found. These papers are summarised in table 1. ...
Spontaneous pneumothorax with early signs of tensioning. This was quickly recognised by the clinical team who treated this with insertion of an intercostal chest drain. This is appropriately orientated to the apex of the lung.
Needle thoracentesis is an emergency procedure to relieve tension pneumothorax. Published recommendations suggest use of angiocatheters or needles in the 5-cm range for emergency treatment. Multidetector computed tomography scans from 100 virtual autopsy cases were used to determine chest wall thickness in deployed male military personnel. Measurement was made in the second right intercostal space at the midclavicular line. The mean horizontal thickness was 5.36 cm (SD = 1.19 cm) with angled (perpendicular) thickness slightly less with a mean of 4.86 cm (SD 1.10 cm). Thickness was generally greater than previously reported. An 8-cm angiocatheter would have reached the pleural space in 99% of subjects in this series. Recommended procedures for needle thoracentesis to relieve tension pneumothorax should be adapted to reflect use of an angiocatheter or needle of sufficient length. ...

Symptoms. The clinical symptoms of pneumothorax vary significantly. This ranges from slight tickling of the throat or light pressure feeling and pain to strong difficulty in breathing and feelings of suffocation. Basically the rule applies that if a pneumothorax occurs acutely also the probability of strong symptoms is high, whereas at a gradual slow development of a pneumothorax the symptoms are significantly milder. In most of the cases nevertheless a quick breathing (tachypnea) is the first symptom Additionally pressure feelings or pains, partially in intervals, might occur and radiate into the arms, head or back. In severe cases of breathlessness the skin turns blue-gray, which shows the oxygen shortage in the blood (cyanosis). In case of a traumatic pneumothorax air might leaks subcutaneously; a so-called skin emphysema. At light pressure on the skin a crackling or grinding noise can be heard, similar to pressing against snow. A tension pneumothorax additionally to the mentioned symptoms ...
I did notice that I had two little red marks at the site on my upper back, and thought, Hmmm, one tumor, two needle marks? Oh, well. When I called for a copy of the operative report later that week, I was stunned at a something I read. It described the prep for the surgery, and then this: At this time a 25% pneumothorax was identified on the left side, followed by a chest tube placement. Whaaa? I had a collapsed lung before the RFA even started? How long have I been walking around with that? The monkeys were going crazy. As I speed dialed Dr. Hong, I thought, Um. Dr. Hong? Excuse me, but WTF? Did I walk in with this? Did you forget to mention something? Of course I had to leave a message and wait with the monkeys till he called me back. Oh no, he said. If you had a 25% collapse, you would have known it. He then proceeded to advise me not to read the reports. To this I replied, Dr. Hong, have you met me? We both just laughed as my blood pressure receded. Yes, I had a small ...
What every physician needs to know: A pneumothorax is present when there is air in the pleural space. Primary spontaneous pneumothoraces are usually more of a nuisance than they are life-threatening, while secondary pneumothoraces can be life-threatening because of limited lung reserve. Tension pneumothorax is a medical emergency that, if not readily diagnosed and treated,…. ...
There is opacification of the left hemithorax. There is a shift of the heart and mediastinal structures (i.e. the trachea) toward the side of opacification. This eliminates pleural effusion, pneumonia and pulmonary edema as possibilities. A tension pneumothorax will displace the heart and mediastinal structures away from the side of the pneumothorax but it will not cause complete opacification of the opposite lung. In addition, there should be no lung markings visible in the hemithorax which contains the pneumothorax. If you look carefully, there is a missing rib on the left side. That indicates a thoracotomy has been performed, at which time the left lung was removed (pneumonectomy) for cancer treatment ...
Minimum of two peripheral cannulae and an arterial line (to allow rapid detection of hypotension from air trapping or pneumothorax). Central venous access if needing vasoactive drugs, strong KCL infusion or if difficult peripheral access (femoral site preferred).. Expect sinus tachycardic secondary to the effects of salbutamol, however hypokalaemia and effects of intravenous bronchodilators also increase the risk of arrhythmias, so continuous monitoring of ECG is mandatory.. Cardiovascular instability is likely to be due to reduced preload secondary raised intra- thoracic pressure from either breath stacking or pneumothorax. Administer 10 - 20 ml/ kg of volume as required and adjust ventilation to prevent breath stacking. In the periarrest patient disconnect from ventilator (a hiss of air will be heard if breath stacking is the problem) and consider manually compressing the chest to help remove any trapped air. If this doesnt rectify the problem a tension pneumothorax should be ...
Though there are barriers of language with patients, and my knowledge of infectious diseases feels so limited, I was amazed at how the familiar experience of hospital rounds quickly gave me a sense of connection and ease amidst the chaos. The afternoons are less structured, and yesterday afternoon when I returned to the hospital to give a talk on the request of a few students, I passed by another student looking at a chest x-ray. Glancing at it, I noticed an enormous tension pneumothorax (for those not in medicine, this is when the lung pops and air builds up in the chest, causing the lung to collapse and push the contents of the chest to one side -- it can be quickly life threatening). Together we quickly gathered more history and found out that our patient was ISS+ (immune suppressive syndrome -- they dont say HIV+ because of the stigma, which is a whole separate discussion...) and likely had PCP pneumonia. She was stable enough for me to consult my Kenyan intern as well as the group of ...

The purpose of this chapter is to unite information which is otherwise spread across numerous sources. The main audience would probably be the supervisor of training who, upon arriving at work one morning, is greeted by an enthusiastic trainee brandishing the WCA form and demanding to undergo assessment. The supervisor, unprepared for this and possibly hung over, will be unlikely to agree unless a scripted resource is available for them where all the information necessary to answer the WCA questions is available. This chapter is that resource. All the important areas are covered.

The show opens with Mallet and Dinah sharing some alone time, a rare thing these days now that Blake is staying with them. Blake enters and encourages them to go out to have some breakfast without her, and they jumps at the chance. Blake makes a call to someone saying she needs to see that person now; we later learn it was to Matt. Blake, knowing that Matts finances are hurting, offers Matt a job building ramps in Dinah and Mallets apartment. Matt suggests they should consult Dinah and Mallet, but Blake says she doesnt want to bother them with this, saying they are having problems. When a suspicious Matt questions Blake further, Blake suggests that Mallets faith in Dinah is shattered and sees his career is compromised because of Dinahs connection to Cyrus Foley, the man who stole Matt and Vanessas money. Matt defends Dinah, the only person who stood by him since he lost his money, his company and his family. Later, Matt sees Dinah at Company and lets her know what Blake has said, to which ...
When a systems solution is applied, the consequence is a re-think of HR policy and practice. In a call centre, this means changing training to be designed against demand, removing inspection and replacing it with prevention-based procedures. It also requires changing the role of management, and this means managers removing all counter-productive measures and replacing them with those that help in understanding and improving performance - for example, measures of demand and flow. As a consequence, capacity and customer service will improve, costs will fall, control is regained and, last but by no means least, morale is boosted. The solution requires that people are put back at the heart of the enterprise. ...
