By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

Publication date: Available online 2 December 2019Source: Medical Journal Armed Forces IndiaAuthor(s): Rajat Prabhakar, M.H.A. KhanAbstractReexpansion pulmonary edema is a rare complication of thoracocentesis with mortality rates as high as 20%. It presents with tachycardia, hypotension, and hypoxemia within hours after thoracocentesis. The exact pathophysiology is not known. The risk factors for the same should be carefully assessed and considered before chest tube drainage. The treatment is supportive. A case of ipsilateral reexpansion pulmonary edema after chest tube drainage of spontaneous pneumothorax is described and...

Discussion The respiratory system is a complex system. The upper airways must remain patient. The lower airways must interface with the vascular system. The musculoskeletal system must provide mechanical function and the central nervous system must provide overall control. Respiratory failure occurs when the overall system cannot support the body’s necessarily ventilation, oxygenation or both. Children are at higher risk of respiratory failure. They have few intrinsic lung parenchyma problems, but have very small airways that increase the airflow resistance by themselves but then have to contend with problems such as...

AbstractPurposeTo assess the efficacy of the tract embolization technique using gelatin sponge slurry after CT-guided lung biopsy to reduce pneumothorax and chest tube placement rates.Materials and MethodsWe retrospectively compared 231 CT-guided lung biopsies performed with the tract embolization technique using gelatin sponge slurry (treated group) with 213 biopsies performed without embolization (control group). All procedures were performed at our institution between January 2014 and September 2018 by one of three experienced interventional radiologists using a 19-gauge coaxial needle. Multivariate analysis was perform...

CONCLUSION: Routine use of chest radiography after tube thoracostomy did not significantly change patient management, which is concordant with recent guidelines. Instead, adverse clinical outcomes or procedural factors should guide investigations. PMID: 31788706 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We read the original article by Suat Zengin et al.1 with interest. The use of ultrasound can be helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of what may be potentially reversible causes of cardiorespiratory arrest (pericardial tamponade, pneumothorax, pulmonary embolism, and hypovolemia),2 as long as it does not interrupt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).3 These reversible conditions can also cause false pulseless electrical activity (PEA). Distinguishing between false and true PEA using ultrasound can contribute positively to patient outcome.

ConclusionThis case illustrates the difficulties physicians in low-resource settings face in the diagnosis and treatment of TES and the importance of a high index of suspicion as well as a multidisciplinary approach in patient care.
