Pneumonia Diagnosis

Diagnosis of PNEUMONIA

Physical exam

In order to rule out any other possible causes — such as other respiratory infections or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) —doctors would perform a physical exam and ask questions about the signs and symptoms about any other health problems.1

Tests to measure lung function

Apart from the medical history and physical exams, if pneumonia is suspected, doctor may recommend the following tests1:

  • Blood tests. Used to confirm an infection and also try to identify the type of organism causing the infection.
  • Chest X-ray. X rays help diagnose pneumonia and its extent and location, but not the organism that is causing the pneumonia.
  • Pulse oximetry. This measures the oxygen level in blood. As pneumonia can negatively affect the amount of oxygen lungs can move into you bloodstream.
  • Sputum test. A sample of sputum is taken after a deep cough and analyzed to find out the causative organism of the infection
  • Pleural fluid culture. A fluid sample is drawn through the lung covering (pleura). This is done by putting a needle between your ribs from the pleural area and analyzed to help determine the type of infection.
