Man diagnosed with 'collapsed lungs' after karaoke marathon

A man surnamed Wang from China was hospitalized and sufferred collapes lungs after his karaoke marathon, according to the report of South China Morning Post.

According to Wang who is from Jianxi province in Nanchang County, he started to feel chest pains after singing 10 in a row high pitch songs in karaoke.

The doctors diagnosed him with pneumothorax or collapsed lungs due to strains after desperately trying to reach the high notes of all songs. 

A pneumothorax occurs when air leaks into the space between your lung and chest wall. This air pushes on the outside of your lung and makes it collapse, per the Mayo Clinic.

“I was very excited in the heat of the moment and after singing a few songs with very high notes, I found myself having breathing difficulties” Wang said.

Collapsed lung can have synptoms like being out of breath and chestpains. The doctor advised not to sing for a period of over two hour for the lungs to recover.
