Save Your Heart and Your Bank Account

Heart surgery can break the bank. An American heart bypass procedure can cost a patient over $144,000. Patients are finding medical tourism a more sensible option, with an Indian heart bypass procedure only costing around $5,200.

Blood Test

The analysis of a blood sample extracted from a patient in a laboratory is known as blood test. The blood can be extracted from a vein or the fingertips. Blood tests are usually conducted to determine any physiological or biochemical disorders in the body.

There are two major blood sample extraction techniques that are used by medical professionals to draw blood from a patient viz. Venipuncture and fingerstick. Both techniques are non invasive and are excellent to draw blood and plasma from the body for the purpose of analysis.

Blood flows throughout the body and supplies the organs with oxygen and nutrients. It also carries away waste particles from the organs to the excretory system. As a result of this, any change in the physiology or biochemistry of the body causes a change in the blood stream. This makes blood test an excellent method to determine most of the medical conditions.
