The advent of advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy has shown an increased demand for anesthesiologists to administer anesthesia in the bronchoscopy suite. Although many of these procedures can be accomplished under conscious sedation, there has been a shift toward general anesthesia especially for complex interventions. The administration of general anesthesia provides an immobile patient, which is often needed by the pulmonologist and results in higher satisfaction for both, the patient and the pulmonologist. This review elaborately discusses the recent practice guidelines used along with the drugs, both old and new used in the current setup.
