Bronchoscopy is a procedure to look directly at the airways in the lungs using a thin, lighted tube (bronchoscope). The bronchoscope is put in the nose or mouth. It is moved down the throat and windpipe (trachea), and into the airways. A healthcare provider can then see the voice box (larynx), trachea, large airways to the lungs (bronchi), and smaller branches of the bronchi (bronchioles).
TrandoMed develop a Bronchoscopy Simulator, which allows users to move the bronchoscope throughout the tracheo-bronchial tree.
Head model attached, enabling insertion from oral cavity and confirmation of the bifurcation of the bronchi and esophagus. The structures of the bronchi in the bronchi main body is 3D printed based on real CT/MRI image, which includes the 5th order bronchi. Your bronchoscope can be inserted up to the 5th order bronchi. The bronchial tree model is fixed in acrylic box for anatomically right orientation.
The Bronchoscopy Simulator is intended to be a resource for educators and clinicians to teach and learn the bronchoscopy procedure. Picture below shows a custom bronchial tree we've made for Imperial College of London. If you are looking for a custom bronchoscopy simulator, plz contact us at email@example.com.
