    Hope this help.

    Pneumothorax, the presence of air in the pleural cavity, results in a partial or complete collapse of the lung. It commonly results from rapture of the subpleural bulla, either as a complication or emphysema or as a spontaneous event in an otherwise healthy young adult, as your self.

    Also it may be a complication of neonatal hyaline membrane disease and require prolonged assisted ventilation.


    I wish I could help you in more detail but honestly I have to have your current history and also I don't have my M.D, license yet.

    Here visit this web site and it will go in greater detail about spontaneous phemo.

    recurrent pneumothoraxes may require intervention. Additionally, assisted ventilation has been trialed (read: CPAP), but I was unable to locate any definite study results.
