Ascitic Fluid Routine

The collection of ascitic fluid in the peritoneal cavity is known as ascites. Various conditions can cause ascites, but the most frequent is portal hypertension, which is usually caused by liver cirrhosis.

To aid in the diagnosis of peritonitis, which is an inflammation of the membrane lining the abdomen, and peritoneal fluid accumulation, which occurs when fluid collects in the stomach or around internal organs, a peritoneal fluid accumulation test is used (called ascites)

Why done? 

When you experience abdominal discomfort and swelling, nausea, and a fever, and your doctor suspects you have peritonitis or ascites, you should see a doctor right away.

This test also detects bacteria and other types of infection.


An abdominal needle, tubing, and vacuum container are used to remove peritoneal fluid from the abdominal cavity. The person receiving the test is laying on the bed with the head lifted. A local anaesthetic is administered first, then the needle is inserted into the abdominal cavity and the sample is taken.

How does one prepare for the test? 

Before the sample collection, you will be requested to empty your bladder.
