Clinical Pulmonary Medicine: November 2003 - Volume 10 - Issue 6 - p 343-345 doi: 10.1097/01.cpm.0000097787.69395.5e Buy Metrics Abstract In an age where medical practice and decision making are based upon evidence-based medicine, medical training still has an “apprenticeship” portion. Different medical and procedural approaches are learned based partly on individual training locations and trainers’ experience due to few randomized studies. In an age when performing studies is not only limited by patient and diagnostic availability but also by funding and patient regulations, studying established methods of treating people is not always at the forefront of new research. Bronchoscopy is not any different. We set out to review available literature on several “rules” passed down to trainers and fellows. We review these myths and legends and their strength or lack thereof in presently available literature. © 2003 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
