Once I checked in, I was seen within 10 to 15 minutes. The receptionist also acted as the person who draws blood. She was perfectly nice but not overly so where it felt inauthentic. I was out after about 5 minutes worth of blood drawn, so I'd say the whole experience took about 20-25 minutes. Space was overall clean. It's a very unassuming location just down from Park Avenue, I believe. Blink and you might miss it.

Latest RSV Test Updates

Oct 31, 2022
A surge in respiratory syncytial virus is putting severe strain on children's hospitals nationwide. Hospitals first began seeing the unseasonable RSV rise in August. Now, many are reporting a case increase of over 300 percent compared to last month. (Becker's)
Oct 28, 2022
Flu-related hospitalizations nationwide have risen dramatically in recent weeks, reaching levels historically not seen until much later in flu season, according to data released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (NBC News)

RSV Test FAQs

  • What is an RSV test?

    RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) is a form of respiratory infection that can be diagnosed with an RSV test. During an RSV test, your healthcare practitioner may obtain a sample from your nose or throat using a swab, or they may inject a saline solution into your nose and gently suction it out.

  • Who should get an RSV test in Alabama?

    Infants, the elderly, and adults with a weaker immune system are all at risk from RSV, which can cause significant respiratory difficulties. Sneezing, headaches, and a runny nose are common symptoms of RSV, which are similar to those of a common cold. Adults normally don't need an RSV test unless they're experiencing severe symptoms like coughing, difficulty breathing, or blue skin.

  • How much does an RSV test cost in Alabama?

    The cost of an RSV test is determined by a number of factors, including the location of the test and if you have health insurance. An RSV test might cost anywhere from $10 to $43 if you don't have insurance.

  • Does insurance cover RSV testing in Alabama?

    The cost of an RSV test may be reimbursed by your health insurance. However, the amount you must pay may be determined by a number of factors, including whether you have a co-pay or have reached your deductible. You can call your insurance carrier or look over your plan documentation if you have any questions about what is covered under your specific health plan.

  • Where should I get an RSV test in Alabama?

    RSV testing is available at a variety of urgent care centers and doctor's offices. If your doctor requests an RSV test for you or your child, it will almost certainly be done in their office by a nurse.

  • How is RSV tested for in infants and babies?

    A nasal swab is commonly used to perform RSV tests on young children and newborns. A little swab will be inserted into the child's nostril until it reaches the back of their nose by your healthcare professional. To acquire a sample of nasal secretions, they will gently move the swab around. While there may be some discomfort at first, the test is harmless and short.

  • How long does it take to get RSV test results in Alabama?

    The results of a nasal swab test conducted on-site at your doctor's office are usually ready in a matter of minutes. RSV is occasionally diagnosed with blood testing, in which case the sample will most likely be submitted to a lab for analysis. It could take a few days for the findings to come in.

  • How accurate are RSV tests in Alabama?

    RSV tests that use a nasal secretion sample are accurate 80 to 90% of the time. RSV antibody blood tests are frequently inaccurate, especially in newborns and young children. This is because a baby's blood can still have antibodies from their mother after birth. If an infant tests positive for RSV, it's possible that the mother infected them with RSV antibodies before they were born.

  • How can I book an RSV test through Solv?

    RSV testing is simple to schedule through Solv. Simply type "RSV" into the search box on our website. The RSV test will be available as an option. Click the search icon after entering your location or selecting the option to utilize your current location. You'll find a list of providers in your area with available appointment times on the next page. To arrange an appointment, simply choose a time and location that is convenient for you, then input your information.

  • Can I do at-home RSV testing?

    There is currently no RSV home testing available. Some businesses are working on creating home testing for respiratory infections like RSV, COVID-19, and the flu, but these tests are still awaiting FDA approval. Your doctor's office is the best place to get RSV testing.

Alabama RSV Tests

RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) is a common respiratory infection that affects the lungs, nose, and throat. RSV normally causes moderate symptoms in older children and adults, and no test is required. RSV infection is a seasonal infection that usually occurs in the late fall and early winter. It is one of the most common causes of respiratory infections. By the age of two, the majority of children will have contracted RSV, but not all of them will experience severe symptoms.

Your doctor may prescribe an RSV test if your kid has severe infection symptoms such as fever, wheezing, severe coughing, or difficulty breathing. RSV can cause more serious infections in newborns, such as bronchitis, pneumonia, or coup.

Some persons are more likely to acquire a severe RSV infection, such as:

  • Premature babies
  • Children with a congenital heart disease
  • Children with a chronic lung disease
  • Individuals with a weakened immune system
  • The elderly

RSV is very contagious and can be transmitted to others by coughing or sneezing. Fortunately, once you've had RSV, you're less likely to contract it again. If they do, they will most likely have very minor symptoms.

RSV does not have a specific therapy, and most infections clear up on their own in 1-2 weeks. Some over-the-counter drugs, on the other hand, can assist ease symptoms. To help with fever relief, your doctor may prescribe acetaminophen. If your child or infant has been diagnosed with RSV, make sure to follow your doctor's advice and only use children's medications. Never give aspirin to a child. Antibiotics are not often used to treat viral infections, but they may be administered if you have a serious infection.

RSV tests are most effective when administered as soon as the virus begins. There is no need to prepare for an RSV test if your doctor recommends one. Any prescriptions you're taking, including over-the-counter medications and vitamins or supplements, should be disclosed to your doctor.
