Abstract

Bronchoscopy can occasionally transmit disease. Infection control in the bronchoscopy suite is especially important because of the risk of transmitting HIV or tuberculosis. Many ease reports, patient series, and small studies have been published, but little comprehensive guidance is available for clinicians who wish to learn more about the problem and prevent it. We review the literature and describe three ways in which bronchoscopy can cause disease: by transmitting infections between patients, by transferring microorganisms within a patient, and by triggering coughing that can cause airborne infection of patients or health-care workers. Recommendations for infection control are listed; they include installing powerful air filters, using disposable bronschoscope suction valves, manually cleaning all equipment before disinfection, controlling patient coughing, and in some cases, giving patients prophylactic antibiotics.
