Synopsis

Hemoptysis is the coughing up of blood or bloody sputum. Hemoptysis is typically defined as originating from the lower respiratory tract (below the larynx). Drugs known to cause hemoptysis in some patients include NSAIDs, bevacizumab (Avastin), and sildenafil. Cocaine abuse is also known to cause hemoptysis. Treatment for hemoptysis is often supportive and includes oxygenation, suction, and transfusion. Invasive treatments, such as bronchoscopy, are sometimes required.
