Pneumothorax

Pneumothorax

Pneumothorax is a condition where there is air trapped next to lung tissue. This could be an acute condition or it be due to a chest injury or lung disease. Symptoms include sudden chest pains, pain during inspiration, breathlessness and weakness. Most mild cases heal on their own. However severe cases may lead to serious difficulty in breathing and may require surgical intervention to remove trapped air.
