A complete blood count test (CBC test) is a group of tests that evaluate the overall health of the body. It helps detect a wide range of disorders such as anaemia, infection, and leukaemia. This test measures several components of the blood including red blood cells (RBCs) which carry oxygen, white blood cells (WBCs) which fight infection, haemoglobin (Hb) which is the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells, haematocrit which is the ratio of the volume of red blood cells to the total volume of blood, and platelets that help blood clot. The bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquito or transfusion of infected blood can transmit the malarial parasite to human blood, which can be detected with the help of the Malarial Parasite Test.

The CBC test is done: 

  • As a routine check-up.
  • To monitor the overall health of an individual.
  • In cases when the patient exhibits signs and symptoms such as weakness, fever, fatigue, inflammation, or bleeding. 
  • To monitor the treatment of conditions/diseases related to blood cells such as bleeding disorders and treatment procedures such as chemotherapy. 

The Malarial Parasite test is done: 

  • In case of signs or symptoms like fever with chills, nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhoea, and profuse sweating. 
  • As a part of fever panel check-up.

Frequently asked questions

CBC can help to detect various conditions that include anemia of various etiologies, autoimmune disorders, bone marrow disorders, dehydration, infections, inflammation, hemoglobin abnormalities, leukemia, low platelets, lymphoma, myeloproliferative neoplasms, myelodysplastic syndrome, sickle cell disease, thalassemia, and cancer that has spread to bone marrow.
The other tests which can be advised entirely depend on the suspected condition or disease. In the case of abnormal WBC results, the culture of the affected area is advised such as blood culture, urine culture, and sputum culture. Tests for viruses like mononucleosis or EBV can be advised. In case inflammation is suspected, a CRP or ESR test may be advised. In the case of abnormal RBC results, the other test advised can include reticulocyte count, iron studies, tests for folate and vitamin B12, Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase test, or hemoglobinopathy evaluation. In the case of abnormal platelet count, the other test advised can be HIT antibody. Also, additional tests that can be advised include tests for bleeding disorders or excessive clotting disorders such as coagulation factors, prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, or von Willebrand factor.
To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
MCV refers to the mean corpuscular volume. It depicts the measurement of the average size of red blood cells.
MCH refers to Mean corpuscular hemoglobin. It depicts the measurement of the average amount of hemoglobin inside red blood cells.
MCHC refers to Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration. It depicts the average concentration of hemoglobin inside red blood cells.
The symptoms of malaria include high fever, chills, heavy sweating, headache, nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, and pain in muscles.
Malaria is usually caused by the bite of anopheles mosquito. However, it can also be caused by sharing needles or syringes, after an organ transplant, or after blood transfusion.
The species of malarial parasites that infect humans include Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium malariae, Plasmodium ovale, and Plasmodium falciparum.
No, negative malarial test results does not mean absence of malaria. Negative results can be due to the absence of malarial parasite in the peripheral smear of the blood. In such cases, re-test is advised by the doctor.
