Rigid bronchoscopy

Organisers : Prof. Philippe Astoul, Dr. Hervé Dutau

This course is dedicated to develop skills and knowledge in the field of rigid bronchoscopy which is the basis of interventional therapeutic bronchoscopy. After a necessary reminder of the anatomy of the larynx, airways and mediastinum as well as different pathologies and clinical situations leading to the use of rigid bronchoscopy, the course will focus on stent loading and insertion and other methods used for tracheobronchial desobstructions.

During the workshops participants will use animal models and mannequins to develop their practical skills. Participants will be tutored in groups of 3 to allow interactive learning.

An application will be made to EACCME for CME accreditation of this event. The number of credits that you will receive corresponds to your attendance during the course. Please note that you need to sign the register of attendance each day to ensure that you receive the CME credits.
