Certificate Course in Diagnostic & Interventional Bronchoscopy and Thoracoscopy

Certificate Course in Diagnostic & Interventional Bronchoscopy and Thoracoscopy

Diagnostic Bronchoscopy has become an integral part of every respiratory physicians practice. Bronchoscopy is also integral part of intensive care practice and Anesthesiologists need knowledge about the procedure in their day to day practice. We feel that Paediatricians are also keen to do diagnostic Bronchoscopy but hands-on training is not available routinely in their curriculum. We tend to train the students and the practicing respiratory physicians to know the step by step approach of Bronchoscopy, knowledge about bronchial anatomy, cleaning and disinfection of the scope, preparation of the patient, technique of passing the scope, sampling techniques, which includes bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchial brushings, bronchial biopsies, bronchoscopic lung biopsy, Trans-bronchial Needle Aspiration (TBNA) and management of complications i.e. alveolar hemorrhages. This comprehensive one and a half day course will also follow live Bronchoscopy demonstration on patient in the Hospital – Bronchoscopy suits, there also will be discussed about the setting the bronchoscopy suit. Visit to the Operating Room/ Bronchoscopy Suits will also enhance the confidence of the participants.
