    About

    The fever profile comprises tests that help in detecting the cause of fever. It includes Alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT), Complete urine examination, Complete blood count (CBC), Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), Malarial antigen (Vivax and Falciparum), Peripheral smear for malarial parasite (MP), and Typhoid IgM test. This package is especially advised in cases when the fever is persistent and the cause is not identified (fever of unknown origin). 

    The fever profile is done: 
    • To detect the exact cause of fever.
    • To identify the virus/parasite causing the fever.

    Frequently asked questions

    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.
    The symptoms of fever include sweating, chills and shivering, headache, muscle aches, loss of appetite, irritability, dehydration, and general weakness.
    Fever can be caused by various reasons such as virus, bacterial infection, heat exhaustion, certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, a malignant tumor, medications such as antibiotics or medicines used to treat high blood pressure or seizures, and vaccines such as diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis.
    In children, the complications of fever include fever-induced convulsions, loss of consciousness, and shaking of limbs on both sides of the body.
    Fever can be prevented by taking certain precautions such as washing hands properly and frequently, using hand sanitizer in case handwashing is not possible, avoid touching nose, mouth, or eyes, cover mouth when coughing, cover nose when sneezing, and avoid sharing cups, water bottles, and utensils.
