NCLEX Examination:

Practice question # 647.



Bronchoscopy is direct inspection of the trachea and bronchi through a flexible fiber-optic or rigid bronchoscope. It allows the doctor to determine the location and extent of pathologic processes, assess resectability of a tumor, diagnose bleeding sites, collect tissue or sputum specimens, and remove foreign bodies, mucus plugs, or excessive secretions.


Biopsy procedures involve removing a small tissue sample for further testing. Bone marrow aspiration is an important test for evaluating the blood’s formed elements.
