Clinical Trial Summary

Chest trauma (CT) patients with 3 or more ribs fractures with or without pleuropulmonary injury are an indicator of severity. Chest physiotherapy (CP) and analgesia is the first line treatment in these patients. The aim study is to evaluate the effect of positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing compared to the incentive spirometry in terms of pain control in the recent phase of CT.

Clinical Trial Description

After acceptance to participate in the study, patients will be computerized randomized into 2 groups: - PEP group: positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing. - INS group: inspiratory incentive spirometry breathing. The period between day 0 and 20 days post-trauma is considered an immediate phase of TT. Once admitted, an initial evaluation by the doctor will be performed, and pleuro-pulmonary complications, the presence of respiratory failure, and pain control will be evaluated. The CP will perform a clinical, pain control, secretion and a dynamic costal examination. The medical treatment of pain control will begin, and the treatment of CP will begin, where it will be randomized in 2 groups: 1- PEP group: positive expiratory pressure (PEP) breathing the help of a PEP bottle device. 2- INS group: inspiratory incentive spirometry device (Coach®). Will be daily FR sessions, on weekdays. Upon admission, hospital discharge and post-discharge, radiological checks (simple radiography) will be performed and forced vital capacity will be measured with forced spirometry. ;
