Causes for a Punctured Lung-
A punctured lung can happen in many ways. Either from a car accident, or a big hit in sports. When someone endures a blow to the rib region, it can lead to traumatic pneumothorax, which is a collection of air between the lung tissue and the chest cavity or the plueral space. It's not a common condition but it can be potentially life threatening and needs rapid assesment and treatment.
