The purpose of this study is to examine changes in ventilation and airway pressures during conventional bronchoscopy of intubated patients.
RATIONALE: Fluorescent bronchoscopy, when used in combination with conventional white light bronchoscopy, may improve the ability to detect early lung cancer. PURPOSE: A pilot study to ev...
Optical guidance for percutaneous tracheotomy in intensive care is usually performed by bronchoscopy. Recently, an endotracheal tube with a camera mounted at its tip (VivaSight-SL) has bee...
This study will evaluate the outcomes of bronchoscopy in Bome Marrow Transplant (BMT) patients who develop lung infiltrates suspicious for infections of the lungs. It will consist of two g...
Flexible bronchoscopy is one of the most widely performed procedures for diagnosis of various bronchopulmonary diseases. Most patients tolerate the procedure well although cough is often r...
Rigid bronchoscopy is one of the oldest medical techniques used in the respiratory and thoracic fields. Even though its use declined after the development of flexible bronchoscopy, it has again gained...
A 69-year-old woman underwent bronchoscopy because of a suspected lung tumour. Within 2 hours after bronchoscopy, the patient developed facial purpura. Based on clinical assessment and histopathologic...
The safety management committee of the Japan Society for Respiratory Endoscopy (JSRE) conducted national surveys to clarify the state of diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy in 2016.
Bronchoscopy is one of the most common diagnostic procedures in pulmonary practice. Data on the outcome of patients following a non-diagnostic bronchoscopy are sparse. Diagnostic yield depends on indi...
Rigid bronchoscopy may be used to relieve acute airway obstruction following induction of anaesthesia and is a recommended option for management of the difficult airway. The ability of anaesthetists t...
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the bronchi.
A syndrome characterized by progressive life-threatening RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY in the absence of known LUNG DISEASES, usually following a systemic insult such as surgery or major TRAUMA.
A broad category of multi-ingredient preparations that are marketed for the relief of upper respiratory symptoms resulting from the COMMON COLD; ALLERGIES; or HUMAN INFLUENZA. While the majority of these medications are available as OVER-THE-COUNTER DRUGS some of them contain ingredients that require them to be sold as PRESCRIPTION DRUGS or as BEHIND-THE COUNTER DRUGS.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
