Spontaneous Pneumothorax Emergency

Spontaneous Pneumothorax Emergency

In this video a 21 year old with a large spontaneous pneumothorax is treated with a TRU-CLOSE® Thoracic Vent instead of chest tube. This technique effectively treats a pneumothorax while avoiding the degree of pain and incapacitation associated with chest tubes. http://journals.lww.com/em-news/blog/M2E/pages/post.aspx?PostID=9
