NEJM Video: Chest-Tube Insertion

Knowing that I recently had a chest tube, Rachel thought (correctly) that I’d be interested to know that the latest video from NEJM is on Chest-Tube Insertion.

I was under conscious sedation for mine, so I learned a lot from this.

The most important thing that I learned from the video is immense gratitude to Dr. Lim (the surgical resident who inserted my chest tube) for her generous use of anaesthesia and conscious sedation. Yikes. Just watching the video made me cringe a few times. Thank you, Dr. Lim. Thank you, thank you, thank you. A hundred times: thank you.
