This video has been developed by the Perth Children’s Hospital so there may be some differences in procedure if your child is attending a different clinic. We hope the video can provide you with some preparation for your child’s bronchoscopy. Often referred to as a BAL (bronchoalveolar lavage) this technique is used to help the medical team understand more closely what might be happening in your child’s airways and treat anything early if needed. When your child is too little to cough independently and produce secretions (sputum) from their lungs the BAL allows specimens to be collected and check if there are signs of inflammation and/or infection.
