What is ESR Test

ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, is a blood test that measures the rate at which red blood cells settle to the bottom of a tube in one hour. The test is performed by taking a sample of blood from a vein in the arm and placing it in a tall, thin tube. The blood is then allowed to settle for one hour and the distance that the red blood cells settle is measured and reported in millimeters per hour. ESR is a non-specific test that can indicate inflammation or infection in the body.
