A total of 1006 Samples of fiberoptic bronchoscopic channel aspirate were cultured before scopy. This revealed growth of pathogenic organisms in 23 of them. 967 samples were sterile. In the authors’ opinion, routine culture of bronchoscopic channel aspirate is indicated so as to confirm the sterile status of the Fiberoptic bronchoscopic (FOB) channel and to avoid iatrogenic infection in patients undergoing these procedures.
