When air enters the pleural cavity, negative intrathoracic pressure is reduced and some lung tissue collapses. Shows simple versus tension pneumothorax.

Pneumothorax with Bilateral Chest Tubes. Injury resulting in pneumothorax (air in the pleural cavity) that eventually collapes the lungs. The collapsed lungs are reinflated by using two chest tubes to release trapped air and restore normal intrathoracic pressure. May be customized by editing labels, or by combining artwork with graphics from our 15,000 image library.

Hemothorax Lungs. A hemothorax (or haemothorax) is a condition that results from blood accumulating in the pleural cavity. Its cause is usually traumatic, from a blunt or penetrating injury to the thorax, resulting in a rupture of either of the serous membrane lining the thorax and covering the lungs. This rupture allows blood to spill into the pleural space, equalizing the pressures between it and the lungs. Blood loss may be massive in people with these conditions, as each side of the thorax can hold 30%-40% of a person's blood volume. If left untreated, the condition can progress to a point where the blood accumulation begins to put pressure on the mediastinum and the trachea, effectively limiting the amount of diastolic filling of the ventricles and deviating the trachea to the unaffected side. A hemothorax is managed by removing the source of bleeding and by draining the blood already in the thoracic cavity. Blood in the cavity can be removed by inserting a drain (chest tube) in a procedure called a tube thoracostomy. Patients should recover swiftly after this. However, if the cause is rupture of the aorta in high energy trauma, the intervention by a thoracic surgeon is mandatory.
