Pneumothorax In Pediatric
Patients: Management
Strategies To Improve Patient
The clinical presentation of pneumothorax is highly variable. Spontaneous pneumothoraces may present with subtle symptoms when a
small air leak is present, but can progress to hemodynamic instability
in the setting of tension physiology. The etiologies are broad and the
severity can vary greatly. A trauma patient with a pneumothorax may
also have the added complexity of other potentially life-threatening
injuries. While there is a wealth of evidence-based guidelines for the
management of pneumothoraces in the adult literature, the approach
to pediatric patients is largely extrapolated from that literature without a significant evidence base. In this issue, aspects of the history and
physical examination, the use of various diagnostic imaging modalities, and the range of interventions available to the emergency clinician
are discussed.
