As more Americans get tested for the new and the disease it causes ,, they found the test involves a swab deep nose which can be uncomfortable.

Known or culture, allows the physician to collect a sample of secretions from the upper part of the throat, behind the nose.

a health care worker will gently insert what looks like a Q-tip long as far as it will go into someone’s nose, rotating swab to get a good sample, then remove it and place it in a bottle, which is then sent to a laboratory for testing.

users of the ticktock get coronavirus test in the drive-thru facilities grimaced, winced and coughed afterwards.

“Felt like I was stabbed in the brain,” he wrote in his statement. “It’s terrible, I’m sorry,” the health care worker is heard saying in the video. “I wish there were a better way to do it.”

President Trump, who also has a nasopharyngeal swab during his test, not a fan of either. “It’s not something I want to do every day, I can tell you that,” he said during a press conference on Monday. “There’s nothing fun about it.”

For most respiratory viruses, the best place to sample is the back of the nose, said Dr. Daniel Kuritzkes, chief of the division of infectious diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. When it comes to, for example, nasopharyngeal sampling is much more sensitive and reliable than oral sampling, he said.

“But you really need to get (swab) back into the pharynx nose and not the very front, in order to get a good sample and have it reliable,” said Kuritzkes TODAY.

“This can be quite uncomfortable. It should not be painful. This is not the most pleasant experiences anyone, but then get a deep throat swab on the tonsils often make some jokes.

“It’s unfortunate that it’s not a procedure that is easier, but certainly there are many other things we do in medicine are far less pleasant”

The New England Journal of Medicine have detailed videos about what the test looks like :.

at the beginning, people get both the nose and mouth swab because doctors do not know which would be the most reliable, but because it lacks swab test now involves performing only a single nasal swab, said Kuritzkes. Other countries followed the same procedure.

People who are mild and symptoms in the early stages of infection have a very high concentration of the virus in secretions nasopharangeal them, so it was a very good way of sampling the bug, said Kuritzkes. Saliva will be reliable, he added

This swab fast -. It takes only a few seconds. To make it smoother for both individuals and health care professionals, Kuritzkes advise people to try as best they can to relax. It does not need to hold your breath for the test.

“Take a deep breath, bend the back of your neck … so people get the tests can be returned directly to the nasal passages and that will make it as easy as possible,” he said.

On March 17, nearly 32,000 samples have been tested for the new coronavirus in the laboratory and the US public health laboratories.
