Once the air is removed and the pneumothoraxresolved, the nurse should not see bubbles in the water seal chamber.2Because the patient has a known pneumothorax, this is not considered problematic.3This is not a malfunction. When a patient has a pneumothorax, a nurse will see the airleave the chest cavity and make bubbles in the middle chamber. Once the air is removedand the pneumothorax resolved, the nurse should not see bubbles in the water sealchamber.4This is not expected with all chest tubes; it is related to the presence of thepneumothorax.PTS:1CON:Critical Thinking20.ANS: 2Objective: 5.
