Deviant behavior

Nurse: So what brings you in to us today?

Patient: Um, well, I had some trouble breathing today and then when I looked in the mirror my neck sort of looked funny. Is that normal?

Nurse:, have a chest tube setup, Doc.

This xray is a Very Bad Thing. How he wasn't gasping for air is beyond me. Interestingly, it's the first time I've ever seen a deviated trachea. Sucks for him, cool for me. One chest tube later, he felt amazingly great. Minus the giant hose sewed into his side, of course.
