Abstract
CHEST TUBE AND LINES – USE WITH PRECAUTION

*Dr. Abhinav Aggarwal

ABSTRACT

Chest tubes are one of the most commonly used invasive instruments in routine practice. Although the technique of insertion of these tubes (especially nasogastric tube) is fairly simple, it is rarely practiced meticulously. Malpositioned chest tubes can lead to severe life threatening complications, especially since these patients are already suffering from long-term illnesses and are considerably debilitated. Chest radiographs are still the most commonly used method of diagnosis of a tube insertion misadventure, however newer modalities are now available which also aid in correct placement of these tubes.

Keywords: Chest tubes, pleural effusion, malpositioned tubes, life threatening, complications.
