ESR Test Noida

What is an erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)?

An erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a type of blood test that measures how quickly erythrocytes (red blood cells) settle at the bottom of a test tube that contains a blood sample. Normally, red blood cells settle relatively slowly. A faster-than-normal rate may indicate inflammation in the body.

What is it used for?

An ESR test can help determine if you have a condition that causes inflammation. These include arthritis, vasculitis, or inflammatory bowel disease. An ESR may also be used to monitor COVID.

Why do I need an ESR?

Your health care provider may order an ESR if you have symptoms of an inflammatory disorder. These include:

  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Joint stiffness
  • Neck or shoulder pain
  • Loss of appetite
  • Anemia
  • Covid

What happens during an ESR?

Our expert phlebotomist will take a blood sample from a vein/fingertip in your arm, using a small needle. After the needle is inserted, a small amount of blood will be collected into a test tube or vial. This usually takes less than two minutes.
