Rural Emergency Room Simulation Teaching and Education Resource

Below are three videos. The first is from a great collection from Dr. Bret Nelson from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York, on ultrasound of the pleura. This video contains many aspects of lung ultrasound, not just the pleura and detection of a pneumothorax. 

The second video is from the NEJM on chest tube insertion.

The third video is on pigtail chest catheters. These smaller, less invasive catheters are being used more and more for symptomatic pneumothoraces and even hemothoraces. 

The third video is on how to prepare a Pleur-evac, the same kind we use in Lady Minto Hospital.
