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:
"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

James D. Horwitz
Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, P.C.
Bridgeport, CT

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."
