Study Description
Brief Summary:
Fever can develop after fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FB) in about 2.5 - 16 % of adult patients. We evaluated the impact of oral amoxicillin/clavulanate (AC) on incidence of postbronchoscopic fever and pneumonia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fever Pneumonia Drug: oral amoxicillin/clavulanate 1g (875/125mg) Drug: control Phase 4

Detailed Description:
For the population being undergone with bronchoscopy, the clinical signs and procedural measures for complication of bronchoscopy and cytokines will be checked.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The incidence of fever [ Time Frame: 24 hr after bronchoscopy ]
    time frame for body temperature 24hr before and after bronchoscopy every 4hrs

Secondary Outcome Measures :
