Diagnosis: Tension Pneumothorax

History: Shortness of breath recently.

Findings: Single frontal view of the chest shows large left pneumothorax resulting in deviation of the trachea and mediastinum to the right.

Dxhow: Portable chest film, pleural decompression and chest tube placement resolved condition.

Exam: Decreased breath sounds on auscultation of the left lung.

No MeSH data available.


Single frontal view of the chest subsequently demonstrates left chest tube placement with interval expansion of the left lung and no significant residual pneumothorax.  Cardiomediastinum and trachea are midline.  There are no focal parenchymal opacities.  The soft tissues and bones are unremarkable.
