RSV Test FAQs

  • What is an RSV test?

    An RSV test is used to diagnose respiratory syncytial virus, which is a type of respiratory infection. During an RSV test, your healthcare provider may use a swab to take a sample from your nose or throat, or they may inject a saline solution into your nose, which is then removed with a gentle suction.

  • Who should get an RSV test?

    RSV tests are often given to infants, the elderly, or people with a weakened immune system, all of whom may get serious respiratory problems from RSV. RSV usually causes mild symptoms similar to a common cold, such as sneezing, headaches, and a runny nose. Adults usually don’t need an RSV test unless they have serious symptoms like severe coughing, difficulty breathing, or skin that turns blue.

  • How much does an RSV test cost?

    The cost of an RSV test depends on several factors, such as where you have your test and whether you have health insurance. Without insurance, an RSV test may cost anywhere between $10 and $43.

  • Does insurance cover RSV testing?

    If you have health insurance, the cost of an RSV test may be covered. However, the amount you are responsible for paying may depend on several factors, such as whether you have a co-pay or have met your deductible. If you have questions about what is covered under your individual health plan, you can call your insurance company or review your plan documents.

  • Where should I get an RSV test?

    RSV tests can be performed at many urgent care facilities or doctor’s offices. If your doctor orders an RSV test for you or your infant, it will most likely be performed by a nurse at their office.

  • How is RSV tested for in infants and babies?

    RSV tests for young children and infants are often performed with a nasal swab. Your healthcare provider will insert a small swab into the child’s nostril until it reaches the back of their nose. They will move the swab around gently to collect a sample of nasal secretions. While there may be some momentary discomfort, the test is quick and painless.

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

    If a nasal swab test is taken on-site at your doctor’s office, the results are usually available within a few minutes. Blood tests are also sometimes used to diagnose RSV, in which case the sample will likely be sent to a lab for analysis. The results for this may take a few days.

  • How accurate are RSV tests?

    RSV tests that use a sample of nasal secretions are accurate 80 to 90 percent of the time. Blood tests that look for RSV antibodies are often less accurate, especially in infants and young children. This is because a baby can still have antibodies from their mother remaining in their blood after birth. So if an infant tests positive for RSV, it could mean the mother passed RSV antibodies to them before they were born

  • How can I book an RSV test through Solv?

    RSV tests are easy to book through Solv. In the search box on our website, simply enter "RSV." You will see an option for the RSV test. Enter your location or select the option to use your current location, and then click the search icon. On the next page, you will see a list of providers in your area with available appointment times. Simply select a time and location that is convenient for you, then enter your information to schedule your appointment.

  • Can I do at-home RSV testing?

    Currently, there are no home tests available for RSV. Some companies are in the process of developing home tests that can check for respiratory infections such as RSV, COVID-19, and the flu, but such home tests are pending FDA authorization. The best option for RSV testing is through your doctor’s office.

About RSV Tests

RSV is a very common respiratory infection that can affect the lungs, nose, and throat. For older children and adults, RSV usually causes mild symptoms, and no test is needed. RSV infection is seasonal, usually occurring in late fall and winter. It is a major cause of respiratory infections. Most children will have an RSV infection by the age of 2, but not all of them will have severe symptoms.

If your child has severe symptoms of infection, such as a fever, wheezing, severe coughing, and difficulty breathing, your doctor may order an RSV test. In infants, RSV can lead to more serious infections, including bronchitis, pneumonia, or coup.

Some people have a higher risk of developing a severe RSV infection, including:

  • 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 spread to others through coughing or sneezing. Fortunately, once someone has had RSV, they are less likely to get it again. If they do, they will likely have mild symptoms.

There is no specific treatment for RSV, and most infections go away on their own in 1-2 weeks. However, some over-the-counter medications can help relieve symptoms. Your doctor may recommend medicines like acetaminophen to help reduce fever. If your child or infant is diagnosed with RSV, be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions and use only medications approved for children. Never give a child aspirin. Antibiotics are not used to treat viral infections, but they may be prescribed if your child also has a bacterial complication, such as bacterial pneumonia.

RSV tests work best if they are performed soon after the infection starts. If your doctor orders an RSV test, no preparation is necessary. Let your doctor know of any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medicines and any vitamins or supplements.
