Procedures in Emergency Medicine: Removal of an Intercostal Drain

Oosthuizen, A. (Almero)


This video is part of a series of videos demonstrating common procedures performed in the Emergency Medicine setting. It was prepared by Cape Town Emergency Medicine's consultants and registrars. The aim of the videos is to assist students, medical officers and registrars in learning techniques that are usually taught at the bedside on real patients, with little time for questions, practice or revision. The series is informal and the focus is on the practical skills required to perform the procedure in the context of a busy South African Emergency Centre, with both resource and time constraints.
