I am Dr. XXXXXXX I will try my level best to help you.

(1) Haemoptysis:- is the expectoration (coughing up) of blood or of blood-stained sputum from the bronchi, larynx, trachea, or lungs.

(2) LRTI:- stands of Lower respiratory track infection (lower respiratory track includes Trachea, bronchi and lungs).

In simple terms the following term means an individual is coughing up blood/blood stained mucous secondary to lower hemoptysis are also ruled out.

Hope I was able to answer all the questions. Please feel free to contact me for any other questions.

Thanks for the query.
