Interventional Pulmonology in the Intensive Care Unit

Posted On 2021-07-29 09:59:22

This series on “Interventional Pulmonology in the Intensive Care Unit” is edited by Dr. Jonathan S. Kurman and Dr. Rahul Nanchal, from Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, USA; and Dr. Ashutosh Sachdeva, from Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine, University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Bronchoscopy and airway procedures represent a large portion of the interventional pulmonology that occurs in the ICU. The complementary roles of intensivists and interventional pulmonologists are highlighted in articles that delineate nuances of bronchoscopy in critically ill patients both intubated and non-intubated, novel methods to manage life threatening hemoptysis and foreign body aspiration, utilization of rigid bronchoscopy to alleviate respiratory failure from central airway obstruction, challenges and pitfalls of performing bronchoscopy on patients receiving extracorporeal life support and the evolving role of endobronchial ultrasound in the ICU.
