Pneumothorax secondary to vaping - Wieckowska J, Assaad U, Aboudan M.
Pneumothorax is the presence of air in the pleural space that can result in the partial or complete collapse of a lung. Cigarette and cannabis smoking are also well-known risk factors. Vaping, on the other hand, is not as well-established as little is know... (Source: SafetyLit)

Auris Health Announces Publication of Results from BENEFIT Study of MONARCH ® Platform in CHEST
This study was conducted using strict definitions for diagnostic yield. In previous studies, variations in the definition of yield led to overestimation of a successful bronchoscopy. Given this strict trial design, the diagnostic yield of 74.1% is promising, and we hope this sets the stage for future multicenter trials,” said Dr. Silvestri, Hillenbrand Professor of Thoracic Oncology at Medical University. “We are thrilled to be making a meaningful impact on the diagnosis of lung conditions, particularly in patients with small and difficult to reach nodules that may progress to something more serious,” sai...

What Are Potential Problems of Congenital Lung Malformations?
Discussion Congenital lung malformations (CLM) are commonly identified with prenatal ultrasound and occur in ~1:2400 live births. The natural history shows that lesions may remain the same, enlarge or appear to disappear. There is a wide-range of clinical manifestations. Patients may be asymptomatic or symptomatic at birth and often develop symptoms later. The overall natural history is difficult to ascertain as there are fewer studies done in older children and adults. Those that are done often lack a good denominator by which to judge the incidence or prevalence. Resection is carried out usually if a patient is symptomat...

International Prehospital Medicine Institute Literature Review, January 2021
This study compares the 10-g AC to the 14-g AC for decompression of a tPTX and rescue from a tension-induced pulseless electrical activity (tPEA) in the setting of 30% estimated blood volume loss without hemothorax. The authors hypothesized the 10-g AC would be more effective and have a faster rescue from tension physiology than the 14-g AC currently used by most EMS systems. This was an animal study utilizing anesthetized pigs. The researchers placed arterial and venous lines for hemodynamic monitoring. They then placed 12-mm trocars through each diaphragm through which they could infuse carbon dioxide to simulate a te...

Athletes may also complain of pain caused by them. They are treated in a variety of ways, none of which used as a single method is successful for all individuals.

They are commonly abused by adolescents and use in the US is either stable or increasing. Volatile HC rapidly distribute throughout the body which produces euphoria in seconds to minutes. There are 3 ways that HC are inhaled: Sniffing – directly inhaling the HC from the container. This has the lowest HC concentration. Huffing – a cloth is saturated with the HC and then the cloth is held to the nose and mouth and inhaled. This has a higher concentration ...

How Common are Congenital Rib Abnormalities?
Discussion The embryonic mesoderm forms the skeletal system. The mesoderm is further divided into the dorsal, sclerotome and ventral dermatome. The sclerotome forms the ribs which are under the influence of various genes and growth factors. Congenital rib abnormalities occur in number ( the normal 12 ribs) or in formation/structural. Malformations can include hypoplastic, bridging, forked, fused and hypoplastic ribs. Even ribs with holes occur because of the segmentation issues. Illustrated examples can be found here. The rib’s cartilage, bone or both can be affected. Location along the rib is also variable. Abnormal...

What Causes Respiratory Failure?
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...

What Are Pulmonary Embolism Risk Factors?
Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases
