Tension Pneumothorax - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This medical illustration pictures the effects of a ruptured lung with resulting tension pneumothorax compressing mediastinal tissues and opposite lung within the thorax (thoracic cavity). In this emergency situation, it is imperative that a hole be made immediately in the thoracic cavity on the side of the ruptured lung in order to restore respiratory function.
