Since 2019, millions of cases of covid 10 have been confirmed worldwide. There have been
deaths. In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was difficult to diagnose this disease as
no one was aware of it. Later, lab tests play a vital role in diagnosing the virus infection. These
tests are necessary to monitor the patient's condition throughout the disease and are
categorized on a daily basis as the disease progresses.
A set of lab tests, including blood parameters, inflammatory markers, clotting parameters, liver
enzymes, etc., provides an overview of the severity of COVID-19. The tests help to protect a
person from infection for a period of time after. The duration of this protection varies from
disease and individual.
Tests to monitor COVID profile
- Routine Blood Parameters Research suggests that blood markers such as complete blood count (CBC), leukocytes,
platelets, eosinophils, neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)
are correlated with the severity of the disease during COVID.
- Organ damage markers Apart from the lungs, COVID-19 also affects other vital organs, including the heart, liver, and
kidneys. This can result in fatalities. Some studies have also shown that people with moderate
to severe COVID-19 have elevated levels of creatinine and urea in the bloodstream. It is even
more important to follow the cardiac, hepatic, and renal markers of people with comorbidities
such as heart disease, diabetes, or kidney disease.
- D-Dimer test According to research, D-dimer level is one of the reliable prognostic markers, and increased D-
dimer levels at admission indicate the required intensive care. The test reveals the presence
of clots in the body once COVID-19 becomes severe. Many clots in the body can be found in the
lungs in particular, as a result of which the lungs cannot breathe. Blood flow is interfered with
by coagulation. So the body is trying to decompose these clots. D Dimer test can be detected up
to eight hours after training until released by the kidney.
