AbstractThe invention of the bronchoscope is a result of in-depth research and scientific analysis by countless physicians and researchers, who toiled through difficulties to discover scientific instruments and techniques to ensure a better quality of life to their patient. Gustav Killian was the inventor of the bronchoscope, which was strongly propagated by several stalwarts in medicine resulting in the invention of advanced and innovative techniques and superior bronchoscopes starting with the rigid bronchoscope, flexible bronchoscope to endobronchial ultrasounds, microchip technology and so forth that are being discovered even today. We have attempted to present a brief glimpse of the history of bronchoscopy and the bronchoscopes.
