    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.
    Tuberculosis is a disease that is infectious and is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It primarily affects the lungs and can affect other body parts such as urinary tract, central nervous system, bones, joints, and/or other organs.
    The symptoms of Tuberculosis include cough that lasts for more than three weeks, unintentional weight loss, loss of appetite, fever, chills, and night sweats.
    When the tuberculosis infection is present in the body but it is not spreading, it is known as latent tuberculosis. There are chances that the infection might get re-activated and cause infection in the individual.
    The complications of tuberculosis include infection or damage to the joints, bones, spinal cord, brain, or lymph nodes, liver problems, kidney problems, and inflammation of tissues around heart.
