Bronchoscopy test allows the doctor to look at your lungs and air passage to identify lung diseases and infections caused by bacteria, viruses, etc. In the Bronchoscopy test, a flexible bronchoscope is passed through your nose/mouth, throat and lungs d to perform the test. However, in specific scenarios, a rigid bronchoscope is used if a large object is stuck in your air passage or has profuse bleeding in your lungs. 

 

Some common reasons your Pulmonologists suggest a Bronchoscopy test include:

 

  • Infection, 

  • Persistent cough

  • Something unusual was seen during a chest X-Ray. 

 

There are no specific risks in Bronchoscopy tests; however, some complications include Fever, Collapsed lungs, or bleeding. 

 

Bronchoscopy test is a minimally invasive procedure that needs Anaesthesia to be performed. You are monitored after the process and aren’t allowed to eat until the numbness in your throat disappears. After the Bronchoscopy test, your doctor might put you on a strict diet. It may also happen that tissues for biopsy are taken during the Bronchoscopy test; those results might take longer because of specimen separation.
