    Curated by Dr Vamsi, Apollo Fever Panel - Basic package consists of tests like CBC, SGOT, SGPT, complete urine examination, and ESR, which are essential to identify the underlying cause of fever. These tests are usually recommended for people who get a frequent fever that is accompanied by chills, nausea, and body pain.

    A temporary spike in the body's temperature is termed a fever. It is caused by the hypothalamus – the part of the brain responsible for maintaining normal body temperature. When the immune system detects an infection in the body, it triggers complex processes that produce more heat and activates the hypothalamus to increase the body’s temperature.

    The overall process restricts heat loss from the body and may lead to patients experiencing shivers. While fever is usually a temporary problem that goes away without medication, it can also lead to severe or life-threatening complications. Some of the possible causes of fever include:

    • Viral infections
    • Bacterial infections
    • Malignant tumour
    • Specific inflammatory ailments like rheumatoid arthritis
    • Post-exercise heat exhaustion

    Detecting the cause of the fever can be difficult without consulting a medical practitioner. Hence, it is recommended to seek immediate medical attention if the fever is accompanied by one or more of these symptoms:

    • Constant headache
    • A body temperature above 104 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Constipation
    • Diarrhoea
    • Loss of appetite
    • Abnormality in urine; dark urine or low output
    • Body ache

    At times like these, the doctor may suggest the Apollo fever panel basic test package to determine the cause of the fever and start suitable treatment.

    Apollo 24/7 offers an exhaustive fever profile test to check for some of the most common causes of fever.

    It comprises a series of 51 tests that check for bacterial and viral infections and assess blood and urine samples to confirm the cause of fever. The tests included in this package are:

    • C-Reactive Protein CRP (Quantitative) Test: The lungs release the CRP proteins in the blood only during inflammation. This response can be used to ascertain the cause of the fever and adjust the treatment accordingly.
    • Complete Urine Examination: The body can also experience high temperatures due to a urinary tract infection, which can be detected by a comprehensive urine examination. 
    • Complete Blood Count Test: The complete blood count test aims to gauge the level of white blood cells in the body. High white blood cells may indicate inflammation or infection, and the treatment can be performed as such.
    • Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Serum: This test is a marker to confirm liver disorders or damage.
    • Calcium, Serum: This test not only measures the amount of calcium in the body but also helps in assessing if you have a bone disease.

    A blood test for fever can facilitate the timely detection of the underlying cause. Timely detection can assist in the preparation of effective treatment methods for the fever to minimise the impact of the disease.
