Haemothorax

This image displays a large left sided haemothorax with mediastinal displacement to the opposite side. Clinically the patient would be in respiratory distress - percussion of the left side of the chest would be dull and breath sounds and vocal resonance would be reduced. A Haemothorax such as this falls into the category of life threatening chest injuries (ATOMFC) and requires emergent treatment using a chest drain in the 5th intercostal space, mid-axillary line and treatment according to ALS or ATLS protocols. ATOMFC = A = airway obstruction, T = tension pneumothorax, O = open pneumothorax, M = massive haemothorax, F = flail chest, C = cardiac tamponade.

Hemorrhagic pericardial tamponade

Traditional teaching often suggests the ultrasound appearance of pericardial tamponade is typified by a large echo free (black) rim of pericardial fluid around the heart. Haemorrhagic tamponade is different. Blood is not always black.

Cardiac Tamponade - The Original Kings of County

The Case: 60 yo M PMH metastatic lung cancer, HTN, DM, former smoker¬†presents to the ED with acute onset shortness of breath. Vitals in triage revealed tachypnea and tachycardia. Initial work-up revealed low voltage on EKG, enlarged cardiac silhouette on chest x-ray, bedside ECHO with pericardial effusion without tamponade, and CTA with large left lobe mass and segmental pulmonary embolism. The patient was anticoagulated with heparin infusion. While boarding in CCT and awaiting a non emergent pericardial window, he became acutely dyspneic with elevated heart rate and subsequently asystolic. Pericardiocentesis was performed bedside with return of spontaneous circulation. The patient was brought to the OR for pericardial window and admitted to the ICU. A short while later the patient expired.

Cardiac tamponade is a condition in which there is life threatening compression of the heart as a result of external pressure from the presence of fluid, gas, pus, clots, or blood in the pericardial space.
