Ebook Description

Bronchoscopic procedures are commonly performed for diagnosis of respiratory disorders and therapeutic airway treatment and management. A thorough understanding of procedural and technical fundamentals is critical for improving yield and safety, but they are not featured in procedural reviews for advanced endoscopists. In this book those critical cornerstones of performing bronchoscopy are discussed and explained in detail. Following the successful structure of the first edition, the fully updated content provides detailed reviews of procedural fundamentals including endobronchial ultrasound. Equipment components are described and maintenance is discussed. All chapters include advice on procedural quality improvement. Regulatory requirements, bronchoscopy procedure unit design and management principles are also addressed. This text will be beneficial to a wide range of practitioners including trainees and specialists in pulmonary and all critical care fields, surgeons, anaesthesiologists and respiratory therapists.
