When you return from your journey to a foreign land, it’s important to have certain routine tests completed to ensure that you have not acquired any infectious diseases while abroad. This is vital both for your own safety and for the safety of others. Executive Health Services, Inc. offers specialized post-travel evaluations which may include specific laboratory tests and X-rays.
Here are some of the routine tests we offer for travelers:
- Blood Titer Testing – This test is used to measure antibodies in the blood. It can help verify the presence of a specific viral, bacterial, or parasitic infection. A test may also be conducted before you travel to determine if you need a booster shot for a specific vaccine.
- Malaria Testing – A Malaria test is essential for anyone who has traveled to an at-risk area and believes they may have contracted the disease. Malaria requires immediate attention, so testing should be done as soon as possible.
- Parasite Testing – Parasite testing is another test which may be conducted if a patient feels ill and suspects that they may have come in contact with contaminated water.
- Tuberculosis (TB) Testing – A TB test is a routine test required not only by travelers but by many other individuals, especially those who work in education or healthcare.
The medical staff will use the information obtained from these and other tests to make an accurate diagnosis of the patient’s condition and recommend necessary treatment.
