Discussion Questions


 

Scroll down for more questions.

1. What’s the main finding in the chest so far?
 
 
2. The physician is careful not to cut the veins behind the sternumuscle This would allow blood to enter the chest cavity. Why does it matter to know if the pleural fluid is serous, serosanguinous, hemorrhagic, cloudy, etc.?
 
 
3. How much pleural fluid is there? What can cause this much pleural fluid (vs. a small amount)?
