What are wound infections?

Wound infections occur when bacteria or other microorganisms enter a wound, leading to an inflammatory response or any potential complications. They can range from mild to severe and may require immediate medical intervention.

When should you take this test?

It is crucial to recognize the signs and symptoms of wound infections to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment. It is important to note that individuals may show symptoms a few days after the wound occurred or two to three weeks later.

Hence, your doctor would recommend wound infection panel test if you experience the following signs/symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Increased pain or redness
  • Any swelling, pus, or discharge from the wound
  • Foul odor from the wound
  • Delayed healing.

What factors contribute to a higher risk of wound infection?

  • Poor wound hygiene
  • Compromised immune system
  • Chronic health conditions like diabetes, obesity etc.
  • Smoking
  • Advanced age
  • Medications like corticosteroids and immunodepressants.
  • Presence of foreign objects, such as sutures, catheters, or implants
