Bronchoscopic Procedures in the Intensive Care Unit

M R Silver et al. Crit Care Clin. .

Abstract

Fiberoptic bronchoscopy is a valuable tool in the intensive care unit. The procedure may be an integral part of airway management and has diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Demonstrated expertise is necessary to perform the procedure safely and effectively. This expertise may be particularly important when faced with a complex patient who presents with airway management problems or significant hemoptysis.
