AORTIC RUPTURE AND CARDIAC TAMPONADE






Aortic Rupture may occur as a result of trauma.
Shortness of breath, chest or upper back pain
are some of the symptoms.

Cardiac Tamponade may be caused by penetrating
trauma such as a knife wound. Pericardiocentesis
is usually done to remove the blood in the pericardial
sac. Learn more about these topics, by clicking on
