Military Deployment Blood and Urine Test Panel
A Military Deployment Blood and Urine Test Panel includes ABO Grouping and RHO Typing (Blood Typing); CBC with differential; Comprehensive Metabolic Panel; Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD), Quantitative, Blood and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC); Hemoglobin A1c with eAg; HIV 1/2 Antigen/Antibody; Lipid Panel;Urinalysis (Complete) and Varicella Zoster Virus Antibodies IgG.
The Deployment Panel 1 includes many tests typically needed prior to primary deployment overseas it is recomended that males 40 years and older should also have a Prostate-specific Antigen (PSA) Serum Test performed.
ABO Group & Rho(D) Typing Blood: Identifies patient’s blood group (A, B, AB or O) and whether he/she is Rh negative or positive (this depends on which antigens are present in the red blood cells).
A Complete Blood Count (CBC) gives important information about the numbers and kinds of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A CBC helps your health professional check any symptoms, such as fatigue, weakness, or bruising, that you may have. A CBC also helps your health professional diagnose conditions, such as infection, anemia, and several other disorders. Test includes: WBC, RBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, Platelets, Neutrophils, Lymphs, Monocytes, Eos, Basos, Neutrophils (Absolute), Lymphs (Absolute), Monocytes(Absolute), Eos (Absolute), Basos (Absolute), Immature Granulocytes, Immature Grans (Abs)
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP-14) includes:
Glucose-Blood sugar level, the most direct test to discover diabetes, may be used not only to identify diabetes, but also to evaluate how one controls the disease.
Bun or Urea Nitrogen BUN is another by-product of protein metabolism eliminated through the kidneys and an indicator of kidney function.
Creatinine, Serum An indicator of kidney function.
Bun/Creatinine Ratio Calculated by dividing the BUN by the Creatinine.
Protein, Total Together with albumin, it is a measure of the state of nutrition in the body.
Albumin Serum one of the major proteins in the blood and a reflection of the general state of nutrition.
Globulin, Total A major group of proteins in the blood comprising the infection fighting antibodies.
Albumin/Globulin Ratio Calculated by dividing the albumin by the globulin.
Bilirubin, Total A chemical involved with liver functions. High concentrations may result in jaundice.
Alkaline Phosphatase A body protein important in diagnosing proper bone and liver functions.
Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST or SGOT)an enzyme found in skeletal and heart muscle, liver and other organs. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT or SGPT) an enzyme found primarily in the liver. Abnormalities may represent liver disease.
Fluids & Electrolytes
Sodium One of the major salts in the body fluid, sodium is important in the body's water balance and the electrical activity of nerves and muscles. Potassium Helps to control the nerves and muscles.
Chloride Similar to sodium, it helps to maintain the body's electrolyte balance.
Carbon Dioxide, Total Used to help detect, evaluate, and monitor electrolyte imbalances.
Calcium- A mineral essential for development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. It is important also for the normal function of muscles, nerves and blood clotting).
The Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Blood Test, or simply G6PD Test, evaluates for a hereditary deficiency of G6PD, an enzyme found in red blood cells (RBCs) and other cells. When individuals with a G6PD deficiency are exposed to triggers such as stress, a bacterial or viral infection, or certain substances (examples include fava beans, naphthalene, aspirin, and some antibiotics and anti-malarial drugs), changes occur in RBC membranes that can cause the cells to break apart, leading to hemolytic anemia if the body can’t produce enough cells to replace the destroyed RBCs. Signs and symptoms of hemolytic anemia include weakness and fatigue, shortness of breath, fainting, jaundice, rapid heart rate, and dark (red or brown) urine.
Hemoglobin A1C w/ aeg (HbA1C) evaluates long-term blood sugar control and is one of the leading theories of aging. Serum glucose reacts with important proteins in the body rendering them nonfunctional in a process called glycation. Hemoglobin A1C is a reflection of this detrimental reaction. Doctors often follow this blood test in diabetics to monitor disease progression and the effects of treatment. This test includes a calculation for estimated average glucose (eAG). EAG is a measurement which indicates a person's average daily blood sugar level. EAG is reported in the same units a person with Diabetes would see from the glucose meter they use to measure their own blood sugar. This measurement can give a person a more accurate assessment of how well they are managing their glucose levels because it is not based on single measurements taken at a specific time.
The HIV Antigen/Antibodies Test is the recommended standard rapid test for routine HIV Screening. It typically sees quick results in just 1-2 business days and is one of the most affordable HIV tests available. The HIV Antigen/Antibodies test, also known as a 4th Generation HIV Test, looks for both antibodies to the HIV virus and the p24 Antigen which is specific to HIV. Antibodies to HIV typically begin to develop several weeks after exposure. In the majority of people, these antibodies will be detectable by 12 weeks from the point of exposure. In some people, antibodies may be detectable as early as 4 weeks from exposure. The p24 Antigen is a viral protein which makes up the majority of the HIV viral core (capsid). P24 Antigen levels are typically highest a few weeks after exposure and drop to undetectable levels during the time when antibodies begin to develop. The combination of screening for both antibodies and antigen allow this test to detect a significantly higher number of early infections than previous generations of HIV screening.
Lipid Panel includes Cholesterol, total; high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (calculation); triglycerides; very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol (calculation)
Urinalysis Compete with Microscopic Examination - Detects abnormalities of urine and urinary tract infection (UTI); diagnoses and manages renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
