thanks for posting your case here

i see a little displacement of main airways toward lt, with that -black- representing tha air

highly suggestive of pneuomomediastinum .

make sure baby recieved proper ventilation , if on cpap start ventilation if his distress score is raising

no need for drain in these cases .
