    The fever panel extended test is a series of diagnostic tests done to identify the cause behind fever and other symptoms. In fact, the fever panel extended test aims to diagnose conditions like malaria, dengue, or typhoid.

    Apollo 24|7 offers a comprehensive fever panel extended test with 45+ tests under the package. The tests performed in the fever panel extended test are explained below:

    • Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR): The ESR test helps determine the presence of inflammation in the body. The red blood cells (erythrocytes) settle at the bottom gradually as your blood is stored in a tall and thin tube. This is because inflammation may lead the cells to clump up. Since these clumps are heavier in density than single cells so they collect at the bottom rapidly. The farther your erythrocytes have descended, the greater the inflammatory activity of your immune system.
    • Peripheral Smear for Malarial Parasite (Mp): The Mp test uses your blood sample to gauge the level of malarial parasite or its antigens in the body. These parasites are spotted by examining your “blood smear” on a microscopic slide. This specimen is usually stained before the examination to give parasites a distinctive appearance.  
    • Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Serum: The human body has proteins called enzymes to break down other proteins and absorb them easily. ALT is one such enzyme, playing a crucial role in metabolism. The ALT test measures the level of this compound in your bloodstream. Since ALT is present in the liver, high levels in the bloodstream may indicate liver damage.
    • Dengue Ns1 Antigen– ELISA: NS1 is a non-structural glycoprotein that is produced in abundance by the dengue virus, especially in the early stages. The Dengue NS1 Antigen test uses blood serum to determine the presence of this virus in the body. Usually, NS1 may be detectable in the serum within the first week of infection. 
    • Widal Test (Tube Method): The Widal test is serological in nature, used to detect enteric fever– namely Typhoid and Paratyphoid fever. These conditions are usually caused by the gram-negative bacteria Salmonella enterica, found in the small intestine. 
    • Culture And Sensitivity- Aerobic (Blood): This test is used to check the presence of foreign invaders like bacteria, yeast, and other microbes in your blood. These pathogens can contribute to blood infection. So, if the results of your test are positive, it may indicate bacteria in your blood.
    • Complete Urine Examination: A complete urine examination (CUE) test helps determine the presence of abnormal constituents in urine caused due to conditions and abnormalities in kidney functions. This test is conducted in three phases– visual examination, chemical examination, and microscopic examination.
    • Complete Blood Count (CBC) Test: The CBC test measures many components of your blood such as the white blood cells, red blood cells, haemoglobin, and platelets to detect disorders like anaemia and infection. An abnormal increase or decrease in cell count may indicate an underlying medical condition.

    A temporary rise in the body’s temperature is called a fever. It is the immune system’s reaction to an infection. Normally, a fever goes within a few days but if it persists, it might be time to consult a doctor and get a fever panel extended test.

These types are: Low-grade fever (body temperature rises to 100.4 F) Moderate fever (temperature is in the range of 102.2 F – 104 F) High-grade fever (the body temperature is 104 F or above) Hyperpyrexia (The temperature reaches a value above 106 F)
