This test measures various components in the blood of an individual like RBC(Red blood cells), White blood cells(WBC), Platelets (PLTs), Hemoglobin (Hb), Hematocrit (Hct) along with the microscopic examination for the presence of the malarial parasite in the blood.
What are the components of blood?
Blood is composed of various types of cell and play a role in supplying oxygen and nutrients all around the body. The blood cells are produced in the bone marrow and are released into the blood. The three main types of blood cells are: Red Blood Cells (RBC):
White Blood Cells (WBC):
Hemoglobin and Hematocrit are other two important substances in the blood. Hemoglobin is a complex protein found in red blood cells. It carries oxygen to the body's organs and tissues from the lungs. It also transports carbon dioxide from the body back to the lungs. Hematocrit is the percentage of red blood cell found in the whole blood.
What is a Malarial parasite?
Malarial parasite is a common term used to describe a group of organisms which cause malarial fever. Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease (transferred through mosquitoes to humans) and caused by Plasmodium parasites. These parasites enter the bloodstream through a mosquito bite and multiply within the blood cells later migrate to the liver. The usual incubation period is 7-30 days after the parasite enters into the red blood cells. The multiplication of parasites within the red blood cells leads to the rupture of red blood cells and causing the symptoms of malaria. The common symptoms of malaria are fever with chills, sweating, body pains, headaches, feeling discomfort, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, anemia, jaundice in some conditions, etc. if left untreated the disease can affect the brain, lungs, and kidneys leading to conditions like seizures, confusion, coma, acute respiratory distress, multi-organ failure, and death
Why this test is performed?
This test may be recommended to you if you experience symptoms like fever and chills, nausea and vomiting, sweating profusely, body pains, muscle aches, headaches, discomfort, diarrhea, anemia, jaundice, etc. This test may also be recommended if you are already diagnosed with malaria and on treatment, to check the effectiveness of the antimalarial medicines. Your doctor may ask you to undergo this test if you have recently visited a malaria-prone area and started getting a fever.
Inform your doctor if you are on any medications, have any allergies or underlying medical conditions before your Cbc With Mp Microscopy Blood. Your doctor will give specific instructions depending on your condition on how to prepare for Cbc With Mp Microscopy Blood.
The test results depend on the normal reference range, lower level of levels of red blood cells, hemoglobin, and hematocrit levels may indicate the severity of the malarial infection
If your test results show positive then you may be infected with the malarial parasite.
If your test results show negative then you may not be infected with a malarial parasite.
Your doctor may recommend necessary treatments and further diagnostic tests based on your reports.
