Standard clinical management of a suspected tension pneumothorax includes insertion of a cannula into the pleural cavity. When a patient has a tension pneumothorax, needle chest decompression can be life-saving.

There have been widespread reports of complications following needle chest decompression. Commonly used devices, such as intravenous cannula, may not be long enough to reach the pleural space or they may kink and occlude.

There are a number of important aspects to consider when performing a needle decompression for the treatment of tension pneumothorax.  These include the size of the individual chest wall, the product chosen to perform the procedure and also how certain the individual is of the tension pneumothorax diagnosis.
