PLEURAL FLUID

Pleural fluid analysis is a medical test that examines the fluid collected from the pleural space in the chest cavity. The pleural space is the area between the lungs and the chest wall. This test helps diagnose any underlying conditions that may be causing pleural effusion, a build-up of fluid in the pleural space. During the IVF Pleural fluid analysis, a doctor or a medical professional will insert a needle into the pleural space to collect a sample of the fluid. This sample is then sent to a laboratory for testing. The test includes procedures to examine the fluid's characteristics, such as its colour, consistency, and pH level. It also examines the presence of cells, proteins, and other substances that may indicate an infection or other underlying medical conditions.
