An erythrocyte sedimentation rate or ESR measures the rate at which red blood cells (RBCs) settle down at the bottom of a test tube. Usually, the sedimentation rate of RBCs is normal, but it increases during an abnormal immune response. In this situation, an ESR blood test indicates inflammation, injury, infection, immune disorder, or other chronic diseases.
An ESR blood test is also a part of a complete blood count test available at Apollo 24|7. However, a doctor can order this test separately if you have a history of fever, an inflammatory disease or an immune-related disorder.
