First Aid for Flail Chest

Flail chest is a potentially life threatening condition which occurs when three or more of the ribs are broken. The broken segment can then detach from the normal breathing process and at worst cause the underlying lung to fail. Quick thinking first aid skills can stabilize the casualty until professional help arrives.
