Abstract

A series of 68 chest injuries is presented. Treatment was given by the staff of the anesthesia and resuscitation service and the chest surgery section. The treatment methods employed are briefly explained, together with the clinical and statistical data. Emphasis is laid on the relation between clinical course and blood gas values. The value of tracheostomy and protracted intubation is discussed, together with the utility of analgesic and psycho sedative management. The increased frequency of bronchopneumonic complications is noted. Encouraging results obtained by surgical stabilization of movable flaps by means of Kirschner wires are reported. While this method admittedly requires thoracotomy, this in itself has the advantage of enabling existing pleural and pulmonary lesions to be repaired.
