  • Alveolar Rupture

    Physical examination showed that the patient had recovered from perioral cyanosis, but she had developed subcutaneous emphysema with crepitus over the clavicle and axillary[e-aps.org] Tension pneumothorax A sustained increase of pleural pressure ('tension') often complicates a pneumothorax arising during mechanical ventilation.[alpfmedical.info] On physical examination, crepitus (subcutaneous emphysema) is commonly present in the chest wall or neck.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Tension Pneumothorax

    Developing crepitus due to subcutaneous air can severely limit pleural ultrasound (US) views and hinder the diagnosis of pneumothorax by pleural US.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With the pressure gradually decreasing dueto this maneuver, tension pneumothorax slowly turns into simple pneumothorax.[symptoma.com] CONCLUSIONS: Tension pneumothorax is not uncommon, but clinically fatal tension pneumothorax is extremely rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
