CRP examination

This examination provides a simple measurement of a parameter than indicates inflammation.

The blood test is carried in our surgery on the spot. The whole examination doesn’t take more than about five minutes. It is done from one drop of blood only, which is taken with a prick from the patient’s fingertip. And that’s basically all. Then the nurse mixes the blood with a diagnostic agent, puts the mixture in a special diagnostic tool and in a few minutes we have the results. This examination must be prescribed by the doctor. It can help to decide if the patient’s illness is viral or bacterial in origin. If it is the latter, antibiotics may be appropriate, which is not the case if the illness is viral. Treatment with antibiotics is not without risk.
