I have a good pneumo story! I got out of a long.. drawn out morning report.
I assessed my patient a few minutes after her attending had rounded.
The doc was one of the few I trusted in the facility. She had charted lung sounds clear, yada yada.
I was wondering to myself , why was I even bothering to listen to my patients breath sounds, 5 minutes after the attending had rounded?
The patient was not symptomatic.. however, I could NOT hear any air movement in the right lung fields.
I notified the physician of my findings.. she had no problem with my assessment and ordered a STAT chest xray.
I spent the rest of my morning getting a chest tube inserted.
