    Fever is one of the most common ailments that can affect just anyone anytime. Even though suffering from fever is not life-threatening, if left untreated, it can potentially lead to severe complications. In general, fever is characterised by a sudden increase in body temperature.

    Both adults and children can suffer from fever. It is a reaction of the body's immune system. So, when the body temperature goes beyond 100.4°F, it is considered to be a fever. The condition might vanish within a few days, but the fever symptoms must be kept in mind.

    • Headache
    • Shivering and chills
    • Loss of appetite
    • Extreme weakness and fatigue
    • Diarrhoea and constipation
    • Body ache
    • Nausea
    • Dehydration
    • Vomiting
    • Irritability

    However, these symptoms might depend upon the underlying condition causing them. It is essential to notice these complications and address them properly while caring for young children and disabled patients. 

    Fever is commonly diagnosed by measuring the body temperature using a thermometer. The device determines the exact body temperature of the patient. Doctors might use a digital thermometer by positioning it under the armpit, orally or rectally.

    If a doctor or healthcare professional ascertains that the fever symptoms are not normal, they might recommend the Fever Assessment Advance Test package. The test package is the most comprehensive set of procedures that help doctors detect the root cause of the fever. Opting for the test package will prevent the fever symptoms from worsening and significantly reduce the risk of severe complications.

    Fever is usually a response from the immune system due to an infection, which can be bacterial or viral. A sudden increase in body temperature might indicate dengue, malaria or COVID-19. That is why the Fever Assessment Advance Test package comprises several tests divided into multiple categories for accurate diagnosis:

    • Widal Test (Slide method) - This consists of a series of tests used for determining typhoid and paratyphoid. The tests include Salmonella Typhi 'O' and Salmonella Typhi 'H'.
    • C-Reactive Protein Quantitative test - It measures the c-reactive protein levels in your blood sample to detect liver problems or inflammation.
    • Malarial Antigen (Vivax & Falciparum) test - The examination determines the malaria antigens in your blood sample to prevent malaria.
    • Dengue Virus Antigen Detection (NS1) Rapid test - The dengue fever test analyses the presence of non-structural proteins indicating the dengue virus.
    • Complete Urine Examination test - It consists of physical and biochemical examinations to evaluate the urine sample for kidney diseases and infections.
    • Complete Blood Count test - This is a comprehensive examination of haemoglobin, RBC, PCV, MCV, MCH, MCHC and other constituents for detecting diseases or fever conditions.
    • Dengue IgG/IgM antibodies test - This dengue blood test analyses the presence of dengue virus antibodies.  
    • COVID RT PCR test - The test involves a process called reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. It is used for detecting the COVID-19 virus.

    Apollo 24|7 offers a highly reliable and accurate Fever Assessment Advance Test package that includes 58 tests. It is recommended to opt for this test package as soon as the fever symptoms and associated complications arise.

    faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Frequently asked questions

    The most comprehensive method of fever diagnosis is through a rectal or oral thermometer. Forehead thermometers are also used, but their readings are not very accurate. Many doctors and patients place a digital thermometer under the armpit to understand the body temperature. For specific viral ailments, a dengue blood test and other diagnostic tools might be recommended for diagnosis.
    The most common fever treatment procedure is giving the patient over-the-counter medicines. Medicines like Ibuprofen and acetaminophen are commonly used to treat fever. But the appropriate dosage must be followed for adults and children. This is because an overdose can increase complications.
    Consulting a doctor is important when an infant or a young child experiences fever symptoms. If the child is 3 to 6 months old, a doctor's advice is necessary. Moreover, physically challenged adults and senior adults must not be neglected when they have a fever. Early diagnosis can play a major role in the timely and effective treatment.
    The Fever Assessment Advance Test package can identify and address diseases like COVID-19, dengue, malaria, liver diseases, urinary tract infections and blood disorders.
    Be it a dengue fever test or any other Fever Assessment Advance Test procedure, the patient is required to wait for at least 36 hours for the results. The timing can be less, depending on the patient’s conditions and ailments. The consulting doctor can provide more insights into this.
    The most effective strategies to prevent fever include following the government health guidelines and getting vaccinated against diseases like malaria or COVID-19. Proper sanitation and personal hygiene are also necessary to prevent infections. Moreover, it is recommended to avoid consuming foods cooked in unhygienic places.
