Chest x-ray film confirmed bilateral pneumothoraces, again necessitating chest tube insertions
Standard chest tube insertion
requires sutures and also uses larger tubes, such as 32 Fr (1-3).
Chest tube insertion
can be very dangerous in patients with HH.
It was not possible in this study to obtain data retrospectively to demonstrate whether or not the care path had any effect on decreasing length of duration of chest tube insertion
or duration of hospitalization.
Emergent procedural techniques, such as central line placement, intubation, chest tube insertion
, and intravenous and arterial line placement.
