Chest Wall Bronchi Lungs And Diaphragm

Patients with chest trauma who develop acute, severe respiratory distress have a high mortality rate. About 10 percent of patients admitted with chest trauma required endotracheal intubation almost immediately upon entrance to the emergency department (ED). If shock is also present in addition to the respiratory distress, three-quarters will die. In patients with blunt chest trauma, the most frequent factors associated with acute respiratory distress included shock, coma, multiple rib fractures, and hemopneumothorax (Table... .25.1:1). In patients with penetrating trauma, respiratory distress is usually associated with severe shock or hemopneumothorax (Tab]e.251-.2).
