rigid bronchoscope

rigid bronchoscope

Pulmonology A device used for–dramatic pause–rigid bronchoscopy, which consists of a hollow stainless steel tube, through which instruments are passed; ventilation is usually needed due to tube size; instruments used with the RB include optical telescopes, cameras, biopsy tools, forceps, suction devices, needles for transbronchial biopsies and lasers Note For most applications, flexible bronchoscopy is preferred. See Rigid bronchoscopy. Cf Flexible bronchoscopy.
