Nasal endoscopy and laryngoscopy examination of ENT patients

Last Updated on


This applies to outpatient and ward examinations. The same precautions apply to examination of the oral cavity and anterior rhinoscopy as they can also generate droplet spread and viral transmission.

Everybody performing ENT endoscopy knows this can cause droplet spread and aerosol generation due to sneezing and coughing despite Public Health England (PHE) not listing flexible or rigid endoscopy as an Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP).
