Massive hemoptysis is an uncommon and often dramatic emergency that mandates rapid stabilization and treatment. The definition of massive hemoptysis is not universally established, but the most widely accepted criterion is a blood loss of at least 600 ml/24 h. Massive hemoptysis is most often associated with inflammatory lung disease. The source of bleeding is usually the bronchial circulation and, rarely, the pulmonary circulation. Immediate mortality is primarily related to the rate of bleeding, regardless of the underlying disease.
