Blood test


Blood test

A blood test is a collective term for diagnostic procedures using blood as a specimen. These procedures are useful in the diagnosis of any imbalances in electrolytes and minerals in blood, the presence of infection, the level of blood cells (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets) and to determine the presence of inflammation and other abnormal conditions. Blood tests are taken routinely when a patient is admitted to hospital by a nurse and a haematologist will study the results and treat you accordingly.
