Induced sputum test: What do these results mean?
I had induced sputum testing three mornings last week. Got day one results this morning and this is what they say:
Culture, Respiratory w/wo gram stain results:
Many endogenous flora
<10/LPF squamous epithelial cells
<10/LPF red blood cells
Rare gram – positive cocci, pairs
Obviously, I will contact my doctor after all three days are in, but does anyone know what any of this means?
