4 comments on “Intubation, right main stems, and chest tubes

  1. Thank you Professor Young. This topic is highly interesting and reminds me to take care reading the length, sizes of those frequently used devices. For the indication of the Chest tubes insertion, in our settings (poor ressources countries), they are rarely inserted in non severely ill patients or non-indicated situations. The reason is simple: People who know to make a diagnosis of the pneumothorax may be few on one hand, and those capable of inserting the Chest tube are even fewer on the other hand.
