Can anyone make one simple post on what we need to know about the lung? I filled my FA with crap and not sure what's going on, lung borders in inspiration explorations, pleural borders, where to Insert the needle to avoid lung injury and liver injury? Highly confused on this. Someone help please? Including the midaxillary, midclavicular stuff etc.

Mid clavicular: between 6-8
Mid axillary: between 8-10
Para vertebral: between 10-12

Always at the top of the rib. Low number is lung border higher number is pleura border.
