thanks for choosing HC Magzine
Your question does not reflect specific pathology , some time it is the only feeling that some air is trapped [Due to anxiety induced Tachycardia] and if this symptom is associated with Exertional Dysponea and heaviness, or mild pain should go for cardiac evaluation
As for as the herb for trapped air at upper chest is concerned the herb of choice is Inula racemosa [also called Pushkar moola]

1. air or gas trapped in the upper chest area, causes chest tightness,chest pain,shortness of breath, leading to unnecessary panic and anxiety among patient(s), for any cardiac pathology.
2. could also be PCS (Precordial Catch Syndrome).
3. avoid swallowing of air (sipping tea,chewing gum or tobacco,aerated drinks)
4. eat slowly,avoid haste and chew properly avoiding over eating.
5. regular exercises to improve the tone of the abdominal muscles.
6. Tab Gasex in Ayurveda of Himalaya company has shown good results.
7. Talk with your health care advisor there about the same.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If some air has got trapped in your chest, as such there is no treatment. It will be gradually taken up with time. Otherwise start inflating 6-10 balloons twice daily for an early recovery- until all the air present in your lung gets absorbed .

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul's  Response
Trapping of air in lungs in ayurveda is considered as the result of vitiated kaph or direct injury. In the first case the symptoms are more relevant if there is more of phlegmatic condition then haridra and trikatu i.e. marich maghan and sonth break the phlegmatic connection and release trapped air. If there is no phlegum then asfoetida and lashun are better options. In cases related to injury mrig shring bhasm with hot water acts better.
