What is Urinalysis?
A urinalysis involves collecting a sample of urine from patients to test for various health conditions. This test will involve examining the contents of the urine as well as the appearance and concentration. Tests are done to test for high protein content in the case of kidney-related conditions, for example. Urinalysis for the sake of drug screening or pregnancy testing looks to find substances that aren’t normally in urine, which will indicate a positive result if they are found.
When is a Urinalysis an emergency?
In most cases, a urinalysis is a routine screening. It is commonly used to check overall health and diagnose many medical conditions, but it can become an urgent test in some cases. Those who are suffering from kidney stones may need an emergency room urinalysis to diagnose and treat the painful condition. A clinical urine test could also be urgent for those suffering from extreme or intolerable pain in the lower back, abdomen, or while urinating, as well as those who present with blood in the urine. These are serious symptoms that cannot wait.
