About the study

In brief, CoMiTED is a NIHR-HTA funded randomised controlled trial to find out whether a collapsed lung (pneumothorax) due to injury (trauma) can be safely and effectively treated without immediately inserting a tube into the chest (chest drain). 750 adult patients with a collapsed lung after trauma will be recruited from (at least) 25 hospital Emergency Departments in the UK.
