Phelgem which primarily constitutes sputum might also contain other substance such as dust, dead cells, blood cells and foreign particles like dust. Viral illness, infections of the upper airway passage or lungs, chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) can trigger the production of sputum. Furthermore, smoking or tobacco usage, gastroesophageal reflux disease and nasal discharge are other factors that can stimulate the production of sputum. Under serious conditions sputum are always used for microbial culture tests for identification of respiratory infections and cytological investigations of the respiratory systems.
