neutral  Anne Schulz: Warum nicht 'insertion'? Man soll zwar ja Google nicht alles glauben, aber wenn man "chest drain" eingibt, kommt unter den ersten ca 50 Zitaten praktisch nur 'insert'/'insertion' vor (und nur 1x 'placed').

chest drain placement

Just another option to chest drain insertion (which is also quite common)...
