Bronchoscopy flexible in Dubai at DRHC

Flexible bronchoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the airways and diagnose or treat various lung and airway conditions. At DRHC Dubai, our team of experienced pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons employ state-of-the-art technology to perform flexible bronchoscopy, ensuring accurate diagnosis and effective treatment while prioritizing patient comfort and safety.

Indications for Flexible Bronchoscopy

Flexible bronchoscopy is used to diagnose and manage a range of respiratory conditions, including:

  • Chronic Cough: Investigating the underlying cause of persistent cough.
  • Hemoptysis: Identifying the source of bleeding in the airways.
  • Infections: Diagnosing and treating lung infections, including tuberculosis and fungal infections.
  • Lung Cancer: Detecting and staging lung cancer through biopsy and other diagnostic procedures.
  • Airway Obstructions: Evaluating and treating obstructions caused by tumors, foreign bodies, or strictures.
  • Interstitial Lung Disease: Diagnosing diseases affecting the lung interstation, such as sarcoidosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Procedure Details

The flexible bronchoscopy procedure at DRHC Dubai involves the following steps:

  • Preparation: The patient is positioned comfortably, and a local anesthetic is applied to the throat to minimize discomfort. Sedation or general anesthesia may be administered based on the patient's needs and the complexity of the procedure.
  • Insertion of Bronchoscope: A flexible bronchoscope, a thin tube with a camera and light at the end, is gently inserted through the nose or mouth and advanced into the airways.
  • Examination and Diagnosis: The bronchoscope allows the physician to visualize the airways and lungs on a monitor. Biopsies or samples of tissue, mucus, or fluid may be collected for further analysis.
  • Treatment: If necessary, therapeutic procedures such as removing obstructions, controlling bleeding, or administering medications can be performed during the bronchoscopy.
  • Post-Procedure Care: The patient is monitored for a short period to ensure recovery from sedation. Instructions are provided for post-procedure care, including managing any temporary side effects.

Benefits of Flexible Bronchoscopy

Flexible bronchoscopy offers several advantages:

  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure involves minimal discomfort and does not require surgical incisions.
  • Accurate Diagnosis: Provides detailed visualization of the airways, allowing for precise diagnosis and targeted treatment.
  • Therapeutic Capabilities: Enables the removal of obstructions, control of bleeding, and administration of treatments directly to the airways.
  • Quick Recovery: Most patients can return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
