Bronchoscopy - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Your doctor may perform a bronchoscopy to look for and diagnose problems inside your lungs. Your nose and mouth are points of entry for air to move in and out of your lungs through your trachea, or windpipe, and bronchial tubes. With each breath, your lungs inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This exchange of gases is the way your body gets oxygen into your blood. A bronchoscopy may be done to look for and possibly retrieve a foreign object that may have been inhaled instead of swallowed, investigate a persistent cough or a cough producing blood, obtain a mucous tissue or liquid sample from inside your lungs, or evaluate an abnormal chest x-ray or CT scan. Before your procedure, you will receive medication to help you relax and minimize coughing. An intravenous line will be inserted for additional medications. Your heart and blood pressure will be monitored, and you will be given extra oxygen during the procedure. You will be given either a local anesthetic, to numb your throat, or general anesthesia. During the procedure your doctor will slowly thread a bronchoscope through your nose or mouth, down your throat, past your vocal cords, through your trachea, and into your bronchial tubes. He or she will carefully examine the lining of your airways and may take samples for laboratory examination or remove a foreign object. After the procedure you will be taken to a recovery area. If a biopsy has been taken, you will likely have a chest x-ray before you leave the hospital. Your doctor will send any mucous, liquid, or biopsy samples removed from your lungs to a laboratory for examination, the results of which should be available within a week.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"Thank you for the splendid medical-legal art work you did for us in the case of a young girl who was blinded by a bb pellet. As a result of your graphic illustrations of this tragic injury, we were able to persuade the insurance company to increase their initial offer of $75,000.00 to $475,000.00, just short of their policy limits.

We simply wanted you to know how pleased we were with your work which, to repeat, was of superlative character, and to let you know that we would be more than willing to serve as a reference in case you ever need one. Many thanks for an extraordinary and dramatic depiction of a very serious injury which clearly "catapulted" the insurance company's offer to a "full and fair" amount to settle this case."

"There is nothing like a great graphic depicting the real nature and extent of a victim's injuries to get full value for your client. I use Medical Legal Art for mediations as well as trial."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."
