A bronchoscope is used to be able to diagnose lung problems, such as trouble breathing, a consistent cough, or something abnormal showing up on a chest X-ray or CT scan.It's inserted into your mouth or nose, down through your vocal cords, and into your lungs. The bronchoscope has a small camera that sends pictures to a screen to help the doctor navigate during the procedure. If necessary, the doctor will use the bronchoscope to gather tissue or fluid samples. The procedure usually takes 30-45 minutes and shouldn't hurt.
All donations exceeding our fundraising goal will support the highest priority needs of Emergency & Critical Care. You will receive a tax receipt for the full amount in an email following your donation.
In September 2022, we granted over $110, 815 to the hospital for two new bronchoscopes.
