She is diaphoretic and complaining of pain in her left side and difficulty breathing. The patient's EMT-B partner has applied oxygen by nonrebreathing mask and an occlusive dressing over the entry wound before your arrival.

Her airway is clear, her breathing rate is 38 per minute and shallow, her neck veins are flat, and her breath sounds are absent on the left side. The patient lacks a radial pulse, and her abdomen is nonguarded and nontender.
