“A pneumothorax describes a collapsed lung; a tension pneumothorax involves both a collapsed lung and blood loss.”
“A tension pneumothorax causes cardiac output to decrease; a simple pneumothorax does not affect cardiac output.”
A tension pneumothorax causes blood to accumulate around the lung; a pneumothorax involves the accumulation of only air around the lung.”
