The clinical role of single-use bronchoscopy
Listen to this on-demand webinar on the clinical value and impact of single-use bronchoscopy in the ICU and bronchoscopy suite, featuring Prof. Suveer Singh, Dr. Sonali Sethi and Dr. Jonathan S. Kurman
Prof. Suveer Singh
The clinical role of single-use bronchoscopy in the ICU and how it affects workflow, administration, and guidelines.
Dr. Sonali Sethi
The clinical value of bringing single-use bronchoscopy into the bronchoscopy suite and its potential advantages for interventional pulmonology.
Dr. Jonathan Kurman
The cost and organizational impact of single-use and how this compares to reusable bronchoscopes.
FDA recommends single-use bronchoscopes
In a new safety communication, the FDA substantiates reusable bronchoscope associated cross-infections. To alleviate the cross-infection risk, the FDA recommends introducing a sterilisation step during the reprocessing of reusable flexible bronchoscopes and that single-use bronchoscopes must be considered when there is an increased risk of spreading infection.
What are the implications?
Our white paper explores the implications of these new recommendations and demonstrates the impact these have on patient safety, costs, workflow complexity and turnaround time.
