Abstract

Background: This study aims to investigate the effects of different respiratory expansion methods such as forced coughing, incentive spirometry, balloon inflating, and walking on respiratory function tests including pulse rate, time to complete lung re-expansion, and time to remove the chest tube in patients who had chest tubes for primary spontaneous pneumothorax.
