diately after first CXR was out and before Giufeng was finished with her analysis. Giufeng realizes at once that the drains have not had quite the intended effect: the mediastinum is still displaced to the left because it was apparently mainly the right main bronchus intubation that had caused the decreased aeration and the ensuing atelectasis of the left lung. Fortunately, the anesthesiologist listened to Giufeng and corrected the tube position right after Giufeng had called the incorrect tube position. But Giufeng now recognizes another important finding (Fig. 14.10). Any idea what it might be?
