fiberscope

[′fī·bər‚skōp]
(optics)
An arrangement of parallel glass fibers with an objective lens on one end and an eyepiece at the other; the assembly can be bent as required to view objects that are inaccessible for direct viewing.

fiberscope

A type of boroscope utilizing fiber optics. See boroscope.

Significant difference was found in the SBP measurements during Fiberscope insertion between the two groups.
Differences in the definition between various studies might have produced these differences in the reported incidences; however, other factors such as a different size of fiberscope, or else the type and size of the endotracheal tube, might have affected the incidence.
It was very difficult to identify intraoral structures by fiberscope. I chose a fiberscope for high torque capability (Olynpus laryngofiberscope ENF-V2: OD 3.2 mm, Up/Down 130[degrees]/130[degrees]).
Fiberscope assisted videolaryngoscope intubation in the surgical treatment of TMJ ankylosis.

He has received many awards for his videographic work, including the Graham Eddy Award for "Videotape Recording of Micro-Laryngeal Surgery" (1980); First Place Award for "Video Laryngoscopy Using a Rigid Telescope and Video Home System (VHS) Color Camera" (1981); and another Graham Eddy Award for "Videography of the Larynx: Fiberscope or Telescope" (1985), all from the Biological Photographic Association.

Nasotracheal fiberoptic intubation was achieved using a flexible, wire-reinforced silicone tracheal tube (7.0 mm internal diameter) and an Olympus fiberscope through the left nostril after nasal ephedrine.
Fiberoptic bronchoscopy was done using Olympus BF (P10 and XT20) flexible fiberscope. Bronchoscopy was performed through a nasal route; otherwise an oral route was used in cases of small nose, deviated septum or big nasal polyps.
The fiberscope was prepared so that an epidural catheter (with three standard side-openings at the end) was threaded via the working channel to be used for spraying the vocal cords.
(5,6) This resulted in the development of several alternatives to facilitate tracheal intubation; such as intubating laryngeal mask airway (ILMA), lightwand, fiberoptic bronchoscope (fiberscope), and video/optical laryngoscopes (such as Airtraq, Glidescope, retromolar scope, bullard laryngoscope etc).
discussed the performance of different coils' geometries during multiple frosting and defrosting cycles and also monitored closely the coil using a fiberscope. They noticed that some of the water droplets produced during the defrost cycles remained trapped between the fins.
