Explain the possible cause?


They are saying he (child) has pneumonia and his right lung collapsed and it looks like his heart rotated?? I dont even know what that means or how it could have happened. Does anyone know anything about this??

I think the patient's doctors could answer this best.

Sounds like you're looking for medical advice. I'm not giving any, but it sounds like mediastinal shift to me. Google that and take your questions back to the doctor.

I agree with the above- Looking for a medical explanation on a nursing site isn't the way to go...
