Making an Appointment

Bronchoscopy

Preparing to undergo a bronchoscopy procedure.

Arrive at the office without having anything to eat or drink that a.m. You may be given a prescription for cough syrup to take prior to your arrival. At the office, you will be given medicine to numb your throat, as the nurse starts your IV, she will give you a medication to make you sleepy. The doctor will then pass a flexible scope through your nose and into your lungs. He can then take pictures and pieces of tissue if needed to send to the lab. The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes, with a total time in our office of approximately one hour. When you are awake you will be given home care instructions. Bring someone along to drive you.
