Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Current smokers Procedure: bronchoscopy
Routine bronchoscopy under local anesthesia (lidocain). Duration: +/- 10 min

Detailed Description:

Tolerance evaluation of the bronchoscopy on current and regular smokers. The investigators assess episodes of cough, dyspnea, volume of lidocain (liquid 1% and in spray 10%), duration of the procedure, episodes of desaturation and completion of the bronchoscopy.

The investigators compare patients who did not smoke in the 6 hours before the bronchoscopy and those who have smoked.
