This book provides an in-depth 'state-of-the-art' critical
review of the technique and the applications of flexible and rigid
bronchoscopy to infants and children. Written by an international
panel of experts, it reviews the technical aspects of the
procedure, its common and highly specialized applications as well
as its potential alternatives. The chapters are enhanced by a
wealth of original figures. A major innovation of the book is the
inclusion of online videos from actual bronchoscopies that further
illustrate and elaborate on the information provided in the text.
The book is addressed to paediatric pulmonologists and
otorhinolaryngologists, both experienced and in training, as well
as to other personnel who are involved in the performance of the
procedures. In addition, it is recommended to pulmonologists for
adults and general paediatricians who need to be able to evaluate
the usefulness of bronchoscopy for their patients and be aware of
its limitations and potential contra-indications.
