Respiratory Procedures


Please review criteria to determine if your patient requires prophylaxis

In appropriate candidates, it may be reasonable to give one of the following prophylactic regimens before an invasive procedure (e.g., tonsillectomy) involving the respiratory tract that necessitates incision or biopsy of the respiratory mucosa.

Prophylaxis is not recommended for bronchoscopy unless the procedure involves incision of the respiratory tract mucosa.
