Acid Fast Bacilli Smear Test

AFB tests are typically ordered for people who are experiencing symptoms of active tuberculosis. In your sputum, the tests look for the presence of AFB bacteria. Sputum is a thick mucus produced by the lungs and coughed up. It's not the same as spit or saliva. 

An Acid Fast Bacilli Smear helps to check the symptoms of active TB infection and provides you with a clear picture of what's wrong with your body. You can secure some fantastic Acid Fast Bacilli Smear Delhi for a complete diagnosis of body check-up.

What is the purpose of it?

The most common use of AFB tests is to diagnose active tuberculosis (TB) infection. They may also be used to aid in the diagnosis of other AFB infections. These are some of them:

  • Leprosy, a once-feared disease that affects the nerves, eyes, and skin, is now a rare and easily treatable condition. The skin becomes red and flaky, and there is a loss of feeling.
  • An infection similar to tuberculosis that primarily affects HIV/AIDS patients and those with weakened immune systems.
  • People who have already been diagnosed with tuberculosis can also use AFB tests. The tests can reveal whether the treatment is effective and whether the infection is still contagious.

Are There Any Risks Associated with Acid Fast Bacilli Smear?

No, there is no risk associated with Acid Fast Bacilli Smear.

During an Acid Fast Bacilli Smear, what happens?

Both an AFB smear and an AFB culture will require a sample of your sputum from your health care provider. Both tests are typically performed at the same time. To obtain sputum samples, follow these steps:

  • Coughing deeply and spitting into a sterile container will be required. This should be done for two or three days in a row. This ensures that your sample contains sufficient bacteria for testing.
  • If you're having trouble coughing up enough sputum, your doctor might suggest inhaling a sterile saline (salt) mist to help you cough more deeply.
  • If you're still having trouble coughing up enough sputum, your doctor may recommend a bronchoscopy. You will be given pain medication prior to the procedure so that you do not experience any discomfort. Then a thin, lighted tube will be inserted into your airways through your mouth or nose. Vaccum or a small brush can be used to collect the sample.
