Abstract

Background/aim: During theCOVID-19 pandemic, the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has not been precisely known in bronchoscopy procedures. We have designed a cabinet device called Ankara University Bronchoscopy Cabinet (Aubrocab') to protect healthcare. We aimed to evaluate preventing effect of Aubrocab' on aerosol spreading by measuring the particles in the bronchoscopy suite.
