Pleural Manometry

exp date isn't null, but text field is


Thoracentesis can rapidly relieve dyspnea, but not every thoracentesis goes according to plan. Pleural manometry can help identify lung pathologies like entrapped lung and trapped lung, and may even predict response to pleurodesis and likelihood of re-expansion pulmonary edema. This #OnePager explains the principles of pleural manometry and pleural elastance and shows you how to interpret the results.
