Neither of the dressing options in the study allowed clinicians to visualize the chest tube insertion
No acute complications of chest tube insertion
I think I was on my first chest tube insertion
when Mother finally passed.
3.) The resulting radiograph was normal, and the patient was fortunate to not have undergone a chest tube insertion
procedure, or else a real pneumothorax could have resulted.
Despite its many benefits, there are several potentially significant complications inherent to chest tube insertion
(CTI), a commonly used invasive procedure to evacuate air or fluid from the pleural space.
Another patient developed pleural effusion post operatively and was treated with chest tube insertion
. One gunshot wound victim presented with haemodynamic shock, haemothorax and liver injury.
In this issue, Gross, Jennings, and Clark (2016) reported results of a randomized controlled trial (sometimes called a randomized clinical trial) of three different ways of dressing a chest tube insertion
A chest radiograph (PA or AP) and a lateral view if indicated were done after chest tube insertion
. Intercostal drainage with tube thoracostomy was performed in all patients.
However, no escape of air was noticed on chest tube insertion
and there was no bubbling on connection to an underwater drain.
The second workshop covered chest tube insertion
, pleural tap, insertion of central line, and arthrocentesis.
