Abstract

Haemoptysis is defined as the expectoration of blood or bloody streaking of the sputum. The list of possible underlying differential diagnoses is broad, and the cause of haemoptysis depends on the origin of the individual patient. Patients with minor haemoptysis can often be managed in the outpatient setting. In contrast, patients with major haemoptysis require immediate in-hospital diagnostic workup and therapy. Patients with major haemoptysis should be managed by a multidisciplinary team consisting of Pulmonologists, Critical Care Physicians/Anaesthesiologists, Interventional Radiologists, and Thoracic Surgeons. In major haemoptysis, airway maintenance, adequate gas exchange, and haemodynamic stabilization are mandatory. In this article, the recommended diagnostic and therapeutic steps in patients with major haemoptysis (particularly computed tomography, laboratory analyses, bronchoscopy, and bronchial artery embolization) are presented and discussed.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
