To relieve a tension pneumothorax, a 14-16-gauge needle with a catheter is often inserted into the 2nd intercostal space along the mid-clavicular line, superior to the 3rd rib to avoid injury to the internal thoracic (mammary) artery.
The recommended surgical point of entry is either the lower end of the inverted triangle created by the last rib, the cranial edge of the pubic bone, and the flexor cruris medialis and flexor cruris lateralis muscles or at the midsection of the intercostal space between the last 2 ribs.
