Acting according to the procedure approved by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, Universal Clinics informs that clients can be tested for coronavirus in Kyiv.
When a client calls to the clinic with typical symptoms - complicated breathing, dry cough, high fever - there is a suspicion of a Covid 19 virus infection. To confirm the diagnosis, doctors Universal Clinic recommends coronavirus test. Express method of diagnosis qualitatively detects the presence of antibodies in blood samples, and gives a result within fifteen minutes.
As antibodies are produced only 5-7 days after infection, the primary test can give a false negative result, and mislead physicians. To rule out inaccurate diagnosis, doctors perform a PCR test to determine the virus from the test material - throat slime. The samples are immediately delivered to a virological laboratory equipped with the necessary functional equipment. The tests are performed within 24-72 hours. The initial test must be confirmed by a secondary PCR study.
If the result of the Covid-19 test confirms the expected diagnosis, the doctors of the Universiade Clinic shall notify the Laboratory Centre of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine where the client lives. The notification is carried out within two hours from the moment of suspicion of SARS-CoV-2.
People with mild form of disease, who do not have the risk of complications at the time of examination, receive recommendations and detailed instructions for treatment at home. The doctors tell them that two weeks of self-isolation is necessary to prevent further spread of the disease among friends, relatives and colleagues.
If a person is in serious condition, he or she needs professional help in the infectious diseases department of the hospital. In such a case, a team of doctors will be called and hospitalization will be arranged at the appropriate hospital.
The doctor performs testing on the Covid-19 with a home visit. Doctors take into account the overall clinical picture, study the symptoms and condition of the person, and then decide whether to take the material, the test.
