Time For Blood Tests To Diagnose Malaria?
Lately I pointed to the symptoms of malaria: hot body temperature to 39, a little headache, then shivering, the heat is gone. It’s every 1.5 days, it’s been for 1 week.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Malaria is a disease caused by the parasite Platmodium which is spread by Anophelesbetina mosquitoes, or through blood transfusions or through the use of needles interchangeably (though very rarely). Symptoms of malaria usually appear one to two weeks after the body is infected. Symptoms that arise can be strokes, sweating, chills or cold, vomiting, headaches, diarrhea, muscle aches, and others. If you experience symptoms such as these it is necessary to be examined by a doctor to be examined to determine the diagnosis and treatment. To make the diagnosis, the doctor needs to ask questions and answers about clinical symptoms, travel or live in malaria endemic areas, etc., as well as physical examinations, and additional examinations if needed. Additional examination can be in the form of microscopic blood smear, rapid detection test (RDT), etc. Microscopic blood smear examination is a gold standard examination to establish a diagnosis of malaria. This examination takes a sample of peripheral blood when the patient has a high fever or parasitemia to detect the presence of parasites or not in the blood. After the diagnosis is confirmed, the treatment will be adjusted, the patient will receive antimalarial drug therapy, and other drugs to reduce complaints. Malaria sufferers can recover completely if treated and treated properly. Because malaria is a contagious disease and is an endemic disease in some areas, prevention is needed so that it is not transmitted and transmits the disease to others.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
