Fiberoptic bronchoscopy in nonhospitalized patients.
Arch Intern Med. 1978 May; 138(5):698-9.AI

Abstract

Fiberoptic bronchoscopy is employed extensively in the examination of patients with pulmonary disease. As demonstrated in this large series, the procedure can be performed safely and efficiently on an outpatient basis, with the use of only topical anesthesia. Discomfort is minimal and readily accepted by most patients. Bronchial biopsies of suspected neoplastic lesions can be performed without difficulty. Outpatient bronchoscopy in an appropriate clinical setting can hasten the medical evaluation without compromising patient care.
