pneumothorax:

pneumothorax:
Free air in the chest outside the lung. It can occur spontaneously (out of the blue, with or without underlying lung disease), following a fractured rib, chest surgery, or be deliberately induced in order to collapse the lung. A small pneumothorax without underlying lung disease may resolve on its own. A larger pneumothorax or one associated with underlying lung disease often requires aspiration of the free air and/or placement of a chest tube to evacuate the air and allow lungs to re-expand.

open pneumothorax:
refers to an opening in the chest wall large enough to disrupt the negative intrathoracic pressure required for spontaneous ventilation. Initial treatment may include positive pressure ventilation and/or rapid covering of the open wound with evacuation of the pleural space via tube thoracostomy. For chest trauma cases, large-bore (> 32F) tubes are recommended for better evacuation of blood and other fluids. ...
