Extract

This issue of CHEST marks another exciting milestone in the continuous development and improvement of the journal. After many months of preparation and work, we are proud to present in this issue of CHEST (see page 1678) the first video installment of a new series named “Procedure Videos Online.”1

Much of the practice of chest medicine is procedure based and multifaceted, as chest physicians provide a wide range of medical services including endoscopy, critical care interventions, and the technical components of sleep medicine, among many others. The last 10 years have seen the development and introduction of many new interventions for clinical use by the pulmonologist. Traditionally, most journals have relied on the written word to describe the performance of many interventions; but, as we all know, when it comes to hands-on training, a picture (or a video) can say more than a thousand words, and seeing an intervention actually performed by an expert is generally perceived as much more instructive than reading a description can ever be.
