RSV Test. Fast & Accurate Results | ACCU Reference Medical Lab

2015-10-12 06:00:00

Our RSV test can be performed here at our laboratory, which is located in Linden, NJ. The RSV test, which stands for respiratory virus test, is the fastest and most accurate way to discover what virus is causing your flu symptoms. Many people don’t realize that there are many different viruses out there that can cause the flu, and in a lot of cases the flu is actually caused by two or more different viruses. When you have our RSV test performed you will learn the exact cause of your illness, which will allow your doctor to recommend a virus-specific treatment that can help you recover more quickly. In addition, it will help them avoid prescribing ineffective antibiotics or other treatments that are not designed to fight the virus that causes your particular flu.

Why the RSV Test

For many people the flu is just a very unpleasant sickness that they have to get through with rest and maybe some chicken noodle soup. For those who are immunocompromised in some way, however, the flu can be very life threatening. In fact, even in otherwise healthy individuals a severe flu can become extremely serious if it is not treated properly. Whether you already have health issues or you just don’t want the flu to drag on any longer than necessary, the RSV test is an excellent first step. Using this test you can get a differential diagnosis of lower respiratory infections, upper respiratory infections, the flu and many other things. We analyze the results of your test right away and provide them to your doctor so that you can start your targeted treatment plan as quickly as possible. To put it simply, having this test performed will give you the information you need to get better fast. Without it, the doctors won’t know whether you are sick because of influenza A, H1N1, Influenza B, RSV, or any number of other viruses. Take a look at the following viruses that our RSV test looks for:

  • Adenovirus B/E
  • Adenovirus C
  • Human Metapneumovirus (HMPV)
  • Human Rhinovirus (HRV)
  • Influenza A
  • Influenza A 2009 H1N1 *AKA Swine Flu
  • Influenza A H1
  • Influenza A H3
  • Influenza B
  • Parainfluenza Virus (PIV) 1
  • Parainfluenza Virus (PIV) 2
  • Parainfluenza Virus (PIV) 3
  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) A
  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) B

Each of these can cause very serious health issues, but if you and your doctors don’t know which one you have, they can’t recommend a treatment that is sure to help. This is why doctors often simply recommend rest and fluids for the flu, and in more serious cases they might try a general anti-viral. If you have this test completed, however, you can use the virus-specific treatments that have been proven to work. If you have any questions about the RSV test, or you would like to make an appointment to have it completed, please contact us. We’ll be happy to help you in any way we can. Our laboratory is located in Linden, NJ and we can get you in as soon as possible.
