How does a newborn infant get a pneumothorax  and what's the difference between that an a tension pneumo?

Colapsed Lung: A pneumothorax occurs when air gets in the the space between the chest wall and the lung. This space should not contain anything. So when air gets in, the lungs have to become smaller.

We don't always know why this is. ...Read more

Are babies born without kneecaps. I'm reading in my breast feeding book on newborns and this is what they say ?

Let me explain: Newborn have knee cap. Kneecaps form about the fourth month of fetal life. However, they don’t show up on x-ray very well because they’re not ossified, or bony. At this point in life, the kneecaps are made of a cartilaginous material. The growth centers surrounding the kneecap form late in developmental life in utero and may not appear until just before or just after the infant is born. ...Read more
