Abstract:
The purpose of this teaching presentation is to describe and demonstrate a technique of closed chest tube thoracotomy. This objective is achieved with the aid of several male clinical subjects, diagrams and x-rays. In this presentation nine key steps for performing a closed chest tube thoracotomy are identified. These steps are described and demonstrated on a middle aged male who suffered a penetrating wound to the chest with a resulting hemopneumothorax. The puncture site is located; the operative site is prepared; a local anesthetic is administered; the chest wall is incised superficially and dissected; the complete penetration is then verified using finger dissection; the clamped chest tube is inserted; the chest tube is secured by means of sutures, and the lateral incision is closed with interrupted sutures; and the chest tube is connected to the drainage system. The drainage system is then illustrated and described in detail. A self evaluation period then follows in which the viewer is asked to list these nine steps. A second operation is then shown and various steps are either omitted or altered. The viewer is asked to note these omissions or variations. Correct answers are provided.
