Question regarding selection of PDX for Hemopneumothorax requiring chest tube for multiple (2) rib Fracture. Should rib fracture be PDX or pneumo? Other than pain control nothing was done for the rib fractures. Chest tub was in for 48 hours. Notes state CT did not show any aortic dissection or mediastinal structural injury but it did confirm fractures of 2 ribs on left side accounting for the cause of the pneumothorax.
