Best Answer

Fluid can be drawn off of the lung any number of times through a procedure called thoracentesis. This can instantly relieve breathlessness caused by the fluid that accumulates around the lung. If a patient requires numerous thoracentesis procedures, a doctor may insert a tube for continuous draining.
