Overview

There are laboratory tests that are helpful for diagnosis the underlying cause of hemoptysis. Sputum must be evaluated for the cytology, gram stain, culture, and acid-fast stain. Arterial blood gases might show hypoxia. Complete blood count (CBC) might show elevated WBC, low platelet, and anemia. Signs of dehydration might be detected in laboratory tests such as BUN, Cr, urinalysis, or electrolytes. Coagulation studies might be abnormal.
