This week we discuss Spontaneous Pneumothorax. A member of our team recently was treated for this condition.  Jack Scaro, one of our audio editors felt a sharp pain in his chest, which got worse when he drew a breath.  Being a 20 something college student with a tall, slim stature, he didn't think it could be a heart attack, but had it checked out just to be safe.  The ER docs put a chest tube in to re-inflate his lung and he was hospitalized for a couple of days.  Are you tall and thin?  Are you at risk?  Listen to this week's episode to find out more!Collapsed Lung X-Ray
