Upon arrival the patientís Pleur-evac was noted for positive air leak. This resolved over the course of 24 hours. A water-seal chest x-ray was done which showed no pneumothorax and the patientís chest tube was removed on Monday the 25th. Several hours later a subsequent *post pull* chest x-ray showed no pneumothorax. (or s/l post pool)
