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:
"Thank you very much for the great work on the medical exhibits. Our trial resulted in a $16 million verdict for a 9 year old boy with catastrophic injuries, and the medical illustrations definitely played key role in the trial."

David Cutt

"Whether it's demonstrating a rotator cuff tear, neck movement a few milliseconds after rear impact, or a proposed lumbar fusion, the Doe Report represents an instant on-line database of medical illustration for health-care and legal professionals.

Illustrations can be purchased 'as is' or modified within hours and sent either electronically or mounted on posterboard. An illustration is worth a thousand words, as juries perk up and look intently to capture concepts that are otherwise too abstract. Start with good illustrations, a clear and direct voice, a view of the jury as 12 medical students on day one of training, and your expert testimony becomes a pleasure, even on cross examination. An experienced trial lawyer should also emphasize these illustrations at the end of trial, as a means of visually reinforcing key concepts covered.

As a treating physician, I also use these accurate illustrations to educate my own patients about their medical conditions. The Doe Report is an invaluable resource, and its authors at MLA have always been a pleasure to work with."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
