Effect of Needle Aspiration of Pneumothorax on Subsequent Chest Drain Insertion in Newborns

Effect of Needle Aspiration of Pneumothorax on Subsequent Chest Drain Insertion in Newborns Key PointsQuestionAmong newborns receiving respiratory support, does treating pneumothoraces diagnosed on chest radiography with needle aspiration result in fewer infants having chest drains inserted within 6 hours of diagnosis? FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial of 70 infants, fewer infants assigned to needle aspiration had a chest drain inserted within 6 hours. MeaningBecause needle aspiration reduced the rate of chest drain insertion, it should be used as the initial method of draining radiographically confirmed pneumothorax in symptomatic infants. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Pediatrics American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionAmong newborns receiving respiratory support, does treating pneumothoraces diagnosed on chest radiography with needle aspiration result in fewer infants having chest drains inserted within 6 hours of diagnosis? FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial of 70 infants, fewer infants assigned to needle aspiration had a chest drain inserted within 6 hours. MeaningBecause needle aspiration reduced the rate of chest drain insertion, it should be used as the initial method of draining radiographically confirmed pneumothorax in symptomatic infants.
