Although paediatric flexible bronchoscopy is safe with relatively few side effects, parents frequently report an associated burden. To assess this, we undertook 25 semi-structured interviews with the parents of children who had recently undergone this procedure. Despite reporting the procedure was well explained, parental worry about procedure was common. The procedure resulted in children missing a median of 2 days from nursery/school and the parents having to take a median of 2 days carers leave. There was an additional financial burden related to sibling childcare, travel costs and car parking. Clinicians should address these issues in pre-procedure counselling.
