What is Fair Price?

The Fair Price is the price that you should reasonably expect a medical service to cost if you shop for care. Even in-network providers can have big cost differences for the exact same service. The most expensive can cost more than five times as much as providers that charge a Fair Price.

The Fair Price is calculated from actual amounts health plans have paid on claims. Some services show ?bundled? pricing, which means there are multiple parts to the Fair Price. These usually include facility, physician and anesthesiologist fees, and can be viewed individually in the Fair Price Details. It?s always a good idea to request a price estimate from the provider and compare it to the Fair Price before your procedure.

The information on this website is not a price guarantee. There is no guarantee that any specific provider will charge a specific rate or that specific services will be covered under your benefit plan.

Culture & Sensitivity, Aerobic bacteria Sputum

When you have a respiratory tract infection or a lung-related disorder, your lungs produce a thick substance known as sputum. This substance can make it hard to breathe, cause coughing, and harbor bacteria. If you experience any of these symptoms, your doctor may recommend a sputum culture.

This fast, relatively painless test helps laboratory technicians study the bacteria or fungi that might be growing in your lungs and causing the production of the sputum. This can help them find the cause of your illness.

Often the most difficult part of a sputum culture is getting enough material in a sputum sample for testing

When To Test

Bacterial sputum cultures detect the presence of disease-causing bacteria (pathogens) in people who are suspected of having bacterial pneumonia or other lower respiratory tract infections. Bacteria in the sample are identified and susceptibility testing is performed to guide antibiotic treatment

common uses

Sputum collects in the lower parts of your lungs and bronchi, which are the tube-like pathways that air moves through to reach your lungs. Symptoms that may indicate the need for a sputum culture test include:

cough a fever or chills fatigue muscle aches breathing difficulties chest pain confusion The test can reveal what may be causing the cough and other symptoms. These include:

bronchitis a lung abscess pneumonia tuberculosis chronic obstructive pulmonary disease cystic fibrosis Certain harmful bacteria, viruses, or fungi can cause respiratory conditions. By determining what may be causing your symptoms, your doctor can find the best medication to cure the infection.

In some instances, your doctor may order a complete blood count to determine if white blood cells are elevated. This increase in white blood cells can indicate an infection.

risks

When you aren?t feeling well, the deep coughing associated with a sputum culture may feel uncomfortable. You may experience some chest discomfort after giving the sample.

However, there are no risks associated with having a sputum culture. If you?ve had abdominal surgery, your doctor may instruct you to hold a pillow over your stomach before coughing to minimize abdominal discomfort. This technique is known as splinting.
