Objectives While thoracic ultrasonography accurately determines the size and extent of occult pneumothoraces (PTXs) in spontaneously breathing patients, there is uncertainty about patients receiving positive pressure ventilation. We compared the lung point (i.e. the area where the collapsed lung still adheres to the inside of the chest wall) using the two modalities ultrasound (US) and computed tomography (CT), to determine whether US can reliably be used to assess PTX progression in a positive… CONTINUE READING
