  1. Pneumothorax and other forms of intrathoracic barotrauma related to air travel are rare. Patients with cystic lung diseases, recent pneumothorax or thoracic surgery, and chronic pneumothorax need particular attention. The decision regarding air travel needs to be individualized by assessing risk based on specific disease-related issues and Cited by:
  2. Feb 28,  · The goal in treating a pneumothorax is to relieve the pressure on your lung, allowing it to re-expand. Depending on the cause of the pneumothorax, a second goal may be to prevent recurrences. The methods for achieving these goals depend on the severity of the lung collapse and sometimes on your overall health. Treatment options may include.
  3. Pneumothorax happens when air gets into the space between the lung and the inner wall of the chest. WebMD explains how a collapsed lung can happen in people who are otherwise healthy and in people.
  4. Feb 03,  · A spontaneous pneumothorax is when part of your lung collapses. It happens if air collects in the pleural space (the space between your lungs and chest wall). The trapped air in the pleural space prevents your lung from filling with air, and the lung collapses. A spontaneous pneumothorax can happen in one or both lungs.
  5. Pneumothorax, condition in which air accumulates in the pleural space, causing it to expand and thus compress the underlying lung, which may then collapse.(The pleural space is a cavity formed by the two pleural membranes that line the thoracic cavity and cover the lungs.) Different classifications are used to describe the various types of pneumothoraxes, though two major types commonly are.
  6. Tension pneumothorax is a pneumothorax causing a progressive rise in intrapleural pressure to levels that become positive throughout the respiratory cycle and collapses the lung, shifts the mediastinum, and impairs venous return to the heart. Air continues to get into the pleural space but cannot exit. Without appropriate treatment, the impaired venous return can cause systemic hypotension and.
  7. Pneumothorax develops when air enters the pleural space as the result of disease or injury. This leads to a loss of negative pressure between the two pleural membranes, which can result in the partial or complete collapse of the asmaliralindtansedesucmonsrity.cothorax is classified as spontaneous or traumatic.
  8. Pneumothorax and Hemothorax are collections of abnormal material (air and blood, respectively) within the chest (thoracic) cavity, in the space normally occupied by the tissue of the lungs. They are common complications of blunt or penetrating trauma to the chest. This section will review the types, causes, and basic management of pneumothorax and hemothorax at the EMT level.
  9. Nov 22,  · Gas in the pleural space is termed pneumothorax. Pneumothorax can be a life-threatening condition that needs prompt attention. The management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax is discussed in this topic review. The etiology and diagnosis of pneumothorax, and the management of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax are discussed separately.
