SMS teaching: Pneumothorax

May 2017

Thanks to Dr John Loy




Discussion points:

  1. The majority of large pneumothoraces managed this year have ultimately required intervention
  2. Non-intervention in one case has also generated further dialogue with the Respiratory unit regarding management of these patients
  3. An upcoming multi-centre trial co-ordinated via Monash may further inform our practice
  4. In the meantime discussion with the respiratory or thoracics team on the day regarding large stable pneumothoraces will ensure timely follow-up
