Diagnosis

Diagnosis of dengue fever is possible through clinical treatment post assessment of reported symptoms and physical examinations. Such cases are possible in the regions with prevalent dengue cases. If one starts early diagnosis, then for sure it proves completely curable disease even though it is not easy to easily differentiate this fever with the rest viral infections in the societies. Once the symptoms are found out, then diagnosis becomes easy and such fever can be controlled. The major symptoms are vomiting, rash, nausea and generalized pains besides the cases of low white blood cell counts. Doctors suggest positive tourniquet tests to crosscheck warning signs in the endemic regions for early prevention measures. A few warning signs can be easily observed even before dengue turns chronic and in its early stages. Best use of tourniquet tests are in the areas where chances of going for other laboratory tests are limited and investigations can’t be done freely. It measures blood pressure cuff in a time range of mere five minutes to assess in between diastolic and systolic pressures to obtain results. Once it is done, the next step is to count petechial hemorrhages for further assessment which describes if it is dengue while it goes higher and therefore diagnosis options are chosen accordingly.

Anybody suffering from fever consequently for two weeks or more should go for proper diagnosis to judge if it is dengue fever. At times, it becomes a tough nut to chew to differentiate dengue fever with another similar such disease namely Chikungunya whose symptoms are equally same and later too is a viral infection. The symptoms of both fevers are very much same and they are indeed found in certain regions in the world where dengue prevails. Investigative agencies have constantly worked on such diseases to cure them through timely diagnosis of symptoms besides observing symptoms of malaria, viral hemorrhagic fever, leptospirosis, typhoid fever, measles, influenza and meningococcal disease amongst others.

Most laboratory investigations conclude detecting dengue fever through assessing low white blood cell counts in a person that further cause lowered platelets or metabolic acidosis cases which are common. Such symptoms are common with rest symptoms like moderately elevated aminotransferase levels in which low platelets and white blood cells are symptoms to observe. Plasma leakage might be these in the situation of further chronicity of this disease to cause hemo concentration symptoms in which brings hematocrit increase and hypoalbuminemia cases. Detection of pleural effusions or ascites is possible through conducting physical examinations like ultrasounds to crosscheck fluid cases for early detections of dengue fever. In fact dengue shock syndromes are other symptom checking tools like ultrasounds. Such syndromes check drop in pulse pressures that might being peripheral vascular collapses if left untreated. Symptoms like extreme colds, rapid heart rates and delayed capillary refills in the children indicating peripheral vascular collapses in the sufferers.
