Bronchoscopy

  • CCM fellows have a dedicated rotation in the Medical Procedures Unit to learn bronchoscopy with a specific emphasis on the airway exam, mastery of manipulating the bronchoscopy and obtaining procedure log to meet CCM bronchoscopic requirement. Fellows can assist interventional pulmonology in the operating room during advanced and/or rigid bronchoscopy cases, should they choose. Pigtail chest tubes and thoracenteses are common during this rotation, and fellows can perform intubation at the start of cases.
