    WOW
    HMMMMM

    This is a medical site and u dont know what is the cause of pheumothorax?
    To answer your question pheumothorax ,is caused mostly by trauma!

    (It most commonly results from rupture of a subplural bulla, either as a complication of emphysema or as a spontaneous event in an otherwise healthy young adult.)


    Now to answe my own question and maybe help someone else.
    Postramatic pheumothorax you usually get it from trauma, (no sh**).
    SO the answer to my question is "NO"
    And spantenious pheumothorax is "yes"

    spantenious pheumothorax = May cause the pt to experience dyspnea.

    I hope u know what dyspnea is !! IF not u need to go back to school or ..

    Well thanks to all whom tried to help.

    When I asked what caused the pneumothorax, I wanted to make sure it was trama and not pneumonia. Since you abbrievated it to "pneumo," you see how it could be taken as either one. I didn't want to assume it was one or the other and send you to class with the wrong information that would make you look like the arse you are.

    Speaking of going back to school, Neo, you might want to edit all the typos in your post! Couldn't resist.....

    interesting question Neo. I wish I knew the answer, but I don't.
    I've seen a few patients - perfectly healthy ones- come into the hospital with spontaneous pneumo thoraxes. I always thought it was kinda scary to be walking around one day and be in the hospital the next with a S.Pneumo****
    .

    But, I have had patients tell me they had no infection-accident- nothing. And most are in their 20's and 30's.

    And, I've seen the emphysema patients with them...but thats another story...We know what is going on with them.

    I never thought to ask the dr. what caused the S.Pneumo in the young and healthy pt.s, and didn't ask what the odds are of one happening again (to the same pt.)

    The docs will be happy to explain it to you. Especially ER, pulmonary, and cardiology docs.

    Your first sentence made perfect sense to me...post tramatic...

    I think you will have to ask a doc.
    Hang in here.....
    Some days on here are like life....some are rough....
