With the aim of developing the department of chest and respiratory medicine Jeewan Mala hospital added an Olympus Bronchoscope to its list of latest equipment. Bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to look inside your lungs airways, called the bronchi and bronchioles. The airways carry air from the trachea, or windpipe, to the lungs.
Bronchoscopy can help find the cause of a lung problem. For example, during the procedure, your doctor may see a tumor, Signs of infection, Excess mucus in the airways, the site of bleeding, a blockage (such as a piece of food) in your airway
Your doctor also may take samples of mucus or tissue from your lungs to test in a laboratory.
Sometimes doctors use bronchoscopy to treat lung problems. For example, the procedure might be done to insert a stent in an airway. An airway stent is a small tube that holds the airway open. It might be used if a tumor or other condition blocks the airway.
In children, bronchoscopy most often is used to remove an object blocking an airway. Sometimes it`s used to find out what`s causing a cough that has lasted for at least a few weeks.
Now our expert doctors at Jeewan Mala hospital would be able to diagnose even the smallest lesions of the airways of the lung.
