Pneumothorax (Collapsed Lungs)

Pneumothorax, also called a collapsed lung, occurs when air leaks into the space between your lung and chest wall. This pressure from the air building up and pushing on the outside of the lung causes it to give way. Lung collapse prevents the lung from expanding when inhaling.
