Modification of the effect of fiberoptic bronchoscopy on pulmonary mechanics.

Abstract

Thirty-three patients who were to undergo diagnostic fiberoptic bronchoscopy were studied. Pulmonary function tests were performed before the procedure, after topical lidocaine anesthesia, and immediately and four hours after bronchoscopy. Nine patients received aerosolized isoproterenol (Isuprel) before the topical anesthesia, and nine received aerosolized… (More)
