Up to 70% of patients will ultimately develop at least one pneumothorax in their lifetime and this is often the first sign of LAM. Most commonly, the pneumothorax occurs spontaneously without inciting factors (such as vigorous exertion) After a second pneumothorax, the chance of another rises even more. The surgeon pegged my chance of having another between 80-90%. From online forums, it seems quite common for doctors to.

Pneumothorax Forum - Pneumothorax Questions & Answers

  1. The causes of a collapsed lung are similar to the risks. Lung disease can be a cause for a couple reasons; damage to lung tissue can be a trigger, while mechanical ventilation (if relevant) can imbalance air-pressure in the chest. Other causes can be chest injury or the rupturing of air blisters (blebs) in the lung, often by coughing
  2. The incidence of pneumothorax was not statistically different between the first and second waves, however there was a marked difference in the incidence between groups of patients who received different levels of respiratory support. Of patients requiring no oxygen, 0.16% had a pneumothorax, this increased to 0.56% for patients requiring oxygen.
  3. Pneumothorax occurs when air gains access to, and accumulates in, the pleural space around the lung, resulting in a collapsed lung. Primary spontaneous pneumothorax occurs when a person does not have a known lung condition, and the lung collapse is not due to an injury, e.g. broken rib
