Introduction To Malaria Parasite Test (MP) Smear

What is the procedure for the Malaria Parasite Test?

This MP Test is just like another blood test that looks for Malaria parasites in the blood to confirm the diagnosis. Therefore, the Malaria Parasite Smear Test Procedure is simple and includes the following steps:

  • Firstly, a phlebotomist may tie a band around your arms and ask you to make a fist to make the vein visible.
  • Once the vein is found, the site will be cleaned using a disinfectant to prevent the chances of infection,
  • A clean needle will then be used to insert into the vein to withdraw the required amount of blood, which is then collected into a sterile vial.
  • After this, the needle will be removed, and a bandage will be applied to the punctured site to prevent bleeding and minimize the chances of infections.
  • The sample is then sealed, labeled, and sent to the laboratory for proper analysis, and you will get the reports within a stipulated time frame.

While the procedure is simple and safe, it does cause a little pain, discomfort, or bruise at the punctured site. This is something nothing to be worried about and will fade away shortly. However, if the symptoms persist or you experience anything unusual, seek assistance from your medical expert.

What preparations are required for the MP Smear Test?

While no special preparation is required, some general guidelines that one needs to follow are:

  • You can take your usual meal as it doesn’t require dietary restrictions, but if you are on some medication, make sure your doctor knows about it before the test,
  • Follow their advice on whether to continue the medicine before the test or skip it. Please do not take or stop any medication without their advice.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise before the test, as it may affect the results.
  • Do not smoke or drink before the test, as it can alter the results and can worsen the health as well.

It is always advisable to follow all the instructions and advice of your healthcare provider to ensure that the test results are accurate.

Malaria is preventable with the use of the right preventive measures. So, look at how you can minimize your chances of getting into its grip and getting infected.

  • The best way to prevent malaria is to avoid the bite in the first place. Therefore, use a mosquito net that creates a barrier, shields you against the bite, and minimizes your risks.
