기흉으로 입퇴원 후 추적 위해 내원, 흉부 x-ray 확인 - 동대문구 답십리, 용답동, 우리안애 우리안愛 내과

상기 환자 대학병원에 3일간 입원 후 퇴원

"산소치료만 받았다.", "퇴원시 조금 남아 있었는데 추적 위해 내원하였다."

추적 흉부 엑스레이에서 남아 있는 기흉은 관찰되지 않았다.

"처음에는 흉관 삽관을 하려고 하였다."

; 폐의 첨부만 흉막과 폐의 간격이 벌어져 있어 산소치료 정도를 기대했었지만.. 초기에는 그랬다고 한다.


Thoracostomy has evolved as a primary treatment for evacuation of air or fluid in the pleural space from a myriad of causes. Air within the pleural space is one of the most common reasons for a chest tube. Within the context of pneumothoraces, indications include:

Large (> 25% or apex to copula distance > 3 cm) primary spontaneous pneumothorax; small pneumothorax in this patient population with no underlying lung disease can usually be managed with observation alone

Mechanically ventilated patients with pneumothorax or effusions to decrease the work of breathing and help the patient wean off the ventilator

Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax. Patients with underlying lung disease (cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, emphysema, etc.) will benefit from thoracostomy. They usually have pronounced symptoms and a high recurrence rate with no intervention. There have been reports of increased mortality in those patients where clinical observation is done for small pneumothoraces. Large (> 25% or apex to cupula distance > 3 cm) pneumothorax requires chest tube placement.

Hemodynamically unstable patient

Recurrent or persistent pneumothorax

Tension pneumothorax requires needle decompression followed by an ipsilateral chest tube

Pneumothorax related to trauma
