Bronchoscopy is a procedure a doctor uses to look inside the lungs. This is done with a bronchoscope, a thin, flexible tube with a light and a lens or small video camera on the end. The line is put in through your nose or mouth, down your throat, into your trachea (windpipe), and into the airways (bronchi and bronchioles) of your lungs.
There are many possible reasons due to which you need to undergo the bronchoscopy test:
Here is a general outline of what actually happens before the test. Be sure to talk to your health care provider before having this test so you understand what to expect and ask questions if there’s anything you’re not sure about.
Be sure your doctor knows about any medicines you are taking, including vitamins, herbs, and supplements, as well as if you have allergies to any medication.
After the procedure, you will be watched closely to make sure you don’t have any complications.
Your mouth and throat will probably be numb for a couple of hours. You won’t be allowed to eat or drink until the numbness wears off.
