What is a blood smear test?
A blood smear is a sample of blood that's tested on a specially treated slide. For a blood smear test, a specialist examines the slide under a microscope and looks at the shape, size and qualities of blood cells. These include:
Red blood cells, which carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body
White blood cells, which fight infection
Platelets, which help your blood to clot
For a blood smear, the specialist looks for blood cell problems that may not be seen on a general analysis.
What is it used for?
A blood smear test is used to help diagnose blood disorders.
Why do I need a blood smear?
You may need a blood smear if you have abnormal results on a complete blood count (CBC). A CBC is a routine test that measures many different parts of your blood. Your health care provider may also order a blood smear if you have symptoms of a blood disorder. These symptoms include:
Jaundice, a condition that causes your skin and eyes to turn yellow
Unusual bleeding, including nose bleeds
In addition, you may need a blood smear if you have been exposed to ticks or have traveled to a developing country, or if your health care provider thinks you have a disease caused by a parasite, such as malaria. Parasites may be seen when a blood smear is looked at under a microscope.
What happens during a blood smear?
A health care professional will take a blood sample from the tip of your finger, the process is painless and fast
Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?
You don't need any special preparation for a blood smear. If your health care provider has ordered other blood tests, you may need to fast (not eat or drink) for several hours before the test. Your health care provider will let you know if there are any special instructions to follow.
Are there any risks to the test?
There is very little risk to having a blood test. You may have slight pain or bruising at the spot where the needle was put in, but most symptoms go away quickly.
What do the results mean?
Your results will show if your blood cells look normal or not normal. You'll have separate results for red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
If your red blood cell results are not normal, it may indicate:
Hemolytic anemia, a type of anemia in which red blood cells are destroyed before they can be replaced, leaving the body without enough healthy red blood cells
If your white blood cell results are not normal, it may indicate:
If your platelet results are not normal, it may indicate thrombocytopenia, a condition in which your blood has a lower than normal number of platelets.
