Frequently asked questions

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to form 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. After cleaning, the needle is inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
The symptoms of Dengue fever include fever, severe musculoskeletal pain, retro-orbital pain, headache, and a transient macular rash. The chances of developing dengue hemorrhagic fever and dengue shock syndrome are much higher in children and young adults.
There are 5 types of clinical Dengue fever which include break-bone fever (chikungunya) with no serious complications, low platelet, dengue hemorrhagic fever with bleeding, fluid loss, and Dengue shock syndrome with blood pressure.
The dengue fever NS1 antigen test helps to diagnose current dengue infection in the first week of illness. This test takes less time than the dengue antibodies test. The Dengue antibodies test detects the antibodies if the infection had occurred in the past two to three months.
The test results which need to be monitored in case of Dengue fever infection include electrolytes, platelets, and hemoglobin.
