A number of groups have demonstrated the efficacy of neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser bronchoscopy for treatment of patients with selected tracheobronchial disorders. This therapy involves a new technology, the laser, and new adaptations of conventional rigid and flexible bronchoscopy that are unfamiliar to many bronchoscopists. We describe two teaching models for laser bronchoscopy that have been employed successfully in our laser courses. Using these models, bronchoscopists can become familiar with laser bronchoscopic equipment and appreciate the interaction of laser and soft tissue in a controlled setting in the laboratory before applying this therapy to patients.
