Description of intervention(s) / exposure
We will determine the proportion of people developing bacteraemia following EBUS-TBNA through performance of blood cultures, to be taken prior to and immediately after performance of EBUS-TBNA. Observation of participants will cease after collection of peripheral blood immediately after the procedure.
The study will be conducted over a six month period.

Summary
Brief summary
We hypothesize that bacteraemia occurs in a small proportion of people following needle puncture of the tracheal wall during Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) of mediastinal lymph nodes.
The purpose of the study is to confirm the proportion, and also to identify the likely bacteriologic agents. This will allow appropriate guidelines of use of antibiotic prophylaxis and choice of empiric antibiotic therapy for those developing clinical infection following EBUS-TBNA
