A procedure often used during or after chest surgery, chest tube insertion can help drain air, fluid or blood from the chest cavity. During and after surgery, this build up may cause a lung to collapse. Chest tube insertion may be necessary during or after these types of procedures:
  • Chest surgery/trauma 
  • Pneumothorax – air leakage from the lung into the chest area
  • Abscess causing pus buildup
  • Heart failure causing fluid buildup
  • Bleeding in the chest
  • Fatty fluid buildup
