Curated by Dr Bharani, Apollo Fever Panel - Essential package consists of tests like ESR, Widal test, and malaria parasite test, which is 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 increase in the body's temperature is known as fever. It can affect both children and adults. However, fever is not a life-threatening problem and can be addressed using the appropriate medical methods.

Viral infections are some of the most common causes of a fever. Medical supervision is only required when the body temperature increases beyond 100.4°F. A temperature higher than 100.4°F and 99.5°F (measured orally or rectally) is considered a fever for children.

Some symptoms of this condition are:

  • Increase body temperature
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Shivering
  • Chills
  • Sweating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Dehydration

While fever is not a cause for alarm, if the temperature increases and is accompanied by vomiting, abdominal pain and convulsions, call a doctor immediately.

Urinary tract infections and bacterial gastroenteritis can also cause fever. Further, adults and children may experience slight fever after an immunisation. The first step to tackling a fever is to measure the exact temperature of the person using a thermometer.

Oral, rectal and axillary thermometers are the most common instruments for checking a fever. However, if the temperature is increasing rapidly and lasts for more than 3 days, the condition needs examination. The seizures might not stop, and the fever may go beyond 105°F.

In such situations, a comprehensive fever panel test is required. The Apollo Fever Panel – Essential Test will be the perfect option here.

The Apollo Fever Panel – Essential Test will be a key step in understanding the root causes of fever.

Doctors will utilize the test for fever symptoms and any interlinked diseases. As each of the symptoms can be associated with other diseases, the analysis offers sufficient clarity. So, it enables the doctor to prepare a treatment plan and identify the medication required.
