This chapter on anesthesia for interventional pulmonology (bronchoscopic) procedures addresses the anesthetic considerations and management for these procedures that are frequently performed in bronchoscopy suites outside of the operating room (OOOR). These include endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) diagnostic procedures, as well as bronchoscopic therapeutic procedures. It discusses anesthesia techniques, different airway and ventilation options, anesthesia adjuvants, and helpful tips and clinical pearls aimed at ensuring patient safety while providing the best conditions to facilitate completion of the procedure. Utilizing standardized yet individualized protocols may help improve safety and clinical outcomes in these non–operating room anesthesia (NORA) service locations.
