  • Repair Ruptured Diaphragm.wmv A massive head-on road traffic accident left 24 year old,Mr.Timo (abbreviated for privacy), a foreign national on a holiday to Goa unconscious and struggling for breath. He was picked up and taken to the nearby Vrundavan Hospital, Mapusa. Bilateral Brain contusionsand ten ribs fractured on the left side of his chest with a lung contusion and a resultant air-leak and bleeding inside his left chest -- a hemopneumothorax. He had a left sided chest drain inserted for drainage of the air and blood by the Intensivist at the hospital. He was put on Mechanical Ventilatory Support while he was further resuscitated and evaluated. Then a mystery unfolded as I was called in to see the case. Chest X-ray reviews serially revealed that the feeding tube was seen in the stomach which had migrated into the chest and then the transverse colon with the splenic flexure was lying in the chest too. A CT Scan of the Chest confirmed the findings of the stomach, spleen, colon and even the left kidney holidaying in the chest. Mr.Timo had a Left Thoracotomy and Repair of a Complete Tear in the tendinous portion of the Left Hemi-diaphragm (partition between the chest and the abdomen) after returning the stomach, spleen, the colon and the left Kidney to their normal location -- in the abdomen. The recovery has been good after a very satisfying clinical and operative experience.

  • Breathing Movements Check us out at Breathing consists of two phases, inspiration and expiration. During inspiration, the diaphragm and the intercostal muscles contract. The diaphragm moves downwards increasing the volume of the thoracic (chest) cavity, and the intercostal muscles pull the ribs up expanding the rib cage and further increasing this volume. This increase of volume lowers the air pressure in the alveoli to below atmospheric pressure. Because air always flows from a region of high pressure to a region of lower pressure, it rushes in through the respiratory tract and into the alveoli. This is called negative pressure breathing, changing the pressure inside thelunsg relative to the pressure of the outside atmosphere. In contrast to inspiration, during expiration the diaphragm and intercostal muscles relax. This returns the thoracic cavity to it's original volume, increasing the air pressure in the lungs, and forcing the air out

  • How the Body Works : Breathing Breathing The body's breathing apparatus is enclosed in an expansile bony cage, formed by the ribs, the spinal column and the sternum. The floor of the cage is closed by the muscular diaphragm. Air passes down the windpipe, or trachea, to enter the lungs. During inspiration, or inhaling, the diaphragm moves downward and becomes flatter, and the rib cage expands. This creates a partial vacuum in the lungs and, to equalize the pressure, air is drawn in. Expiration, or exhaling, is passive. The lungs have elastic tissue in their walls and during inspiration this is stretched. In expiration its natural recoil causes the lungs to partially deflate.
