Brief Answer:
you will be safe, no need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking,

I can understand your concern

Don't worry. If laryngospasms happen during the bronchoscopy procedure you are completely safe because you can be intubated and nothing bad will happen.

Bronchoscopy is very indicative for detecting the cause of laryngospasms and after having the results to decide about the right treatment.

So, please do it and you will be safe

Take care and feel free to ask me again
