If there is a substantial growth of microbes seen in your blood sample, it indicates chances of risks like blood infection. If the infected part of your body is not fixed via medication or therapy in time, it can spread into your bloodstream, turning into a systemic issue. A systemic infection is medically termed as sepsis.

Blood infections are serious as the blood flows through your entire system affecting many areas of your body. If your immunity is low, other body parts can be affected easily via blood flow. The pathogens can also mess with the functioning of your immune system, causing severe damage to all the defenses that protect your system against harmful foreign bodies. If this infectious condition is left untreated, it can slowly infect various other parts of your body one by one, leading to a major health issue. It can also lead to severe damage to your body organs and affect their functioning as well.

It takes a little longer to generate results of blood culture test. This is because, it takes time to culture the germs present in your blood via various chemical processes. When blood is drawn from your system, it is sampled and sent to the laboratory. Lab analysis consists of microscopic learning to find presence of bacteria or fungi in the sampled blood. If found, a few chemicals are subjected to the blood samples to induce growth of these pathogens. The specimen is kept under observation until then. Within few days, the growth of micro-organisms are noted. Type, structure and nature of the bacteria is studied for medical reasons.

If your physician has prescribed a blood culture test, avoid any kind of delay. Ensure that you provide complete info about your health, allergies, medical history and ongoing medical courses to your doctor, before you take this test. Doing so, your doctor will guide you about the do's and dont’s to be followed before undergoing the test procedure.
