COVID-19 Diagnostics: Performing a Nasopharyngeal
and Oropharyngeal SwabIt is essential to follow proper infection
control measures when samples are collectedfrom patients with a suspected Coronavirus
infection. Among other things, the examinershould wear an N95 respirator mask, gown,
protective goggles, and gloves. To save resources,we will refrain from using each of these items
in this video and instead only show the technicaldetails of sample collection. Let’s begin with the nasopharyngeal swab. The patient should be alert and cooperative.
Allow them to first blow their nose. The patientshould sit in a relaxed and comfortable position
during the sample collection process. Tiltthe patient’s head back slightly and support
it with your non-dominant hand. If necessary,lean the patient’s head against a wall to
minimize jerky movements. Stand slightly offsetfrom the patient to avoid the risk of contamination
in case of sudden cough or sneeze. Be sure to advise the patient of potential
discomfort during sample collection, and letthe patient know that they are welcome to
close their eyes. Sample collection should only be completed
using sterile swabs made from artificial cottonwith flexible plastic shafts. Calcium alginate swabs or swabs with wooden
shafts must not be used. These materials caninactivate viral particles or inhibit PCR
tests. Furthermore, wooden shafts are morelikely to cause patient injury. Hold the swab like a pen between the thumb,
index, and middle fingers. Maintain a loosegrip that allows the swab to accommodate any
resistance encountered during sample collection,to reduce the risk of injury.
Avoid using the following hand position duringsample collection.
Let’s begin with the nasopharyngeal swab,the preferred method of sample collection. Start by inserting the swab horizontally into
the left or right nostril. Carefully advancethe swab while maintaining a course that is
close to both the septum and the floor ofthe nose, parallel to the palate. Do not advance the swab upwards, but instead
straight back until resistance is felt asthe swab reaches the posterior nasopharynx.
When collecting samples from an adult patient,this corresponds to a travel distance of approximately
5-6 centimeters or 2 inches. The swab shouldreach a depth equal to half the distance between
the nostrils and the outer opening of theear. Leave the swab at this depth for a few seconds
while gently wiping the wall by twisting theswab shaft. Slowly and gently remove the swab. Immediately insert the swab into the sample
collection tube, which may contain 2-3 mLof viral transport media.
If a nasopharyngeal swab cannot be collectedfor any reason, an oropharyngeal sample can
also be collected through the mouth. Again,inform the patient that the smear will feel
uncomfortable for a short time and may triggera gag reflex. Ask the patient to open their mouth wide,
protrude their tongue forward, and say “Ah. ”Depress the patient’s tongue using a tongue
depressor. Gently insert the swab into theoral cavity without touching the lips, teeth,
tongue, hard palate, or soft palate. Thesesurfaces should be avoided as they are often
colonized by a wide range of microbes. Collect the sample from the back wall of the
throat. Twist the swab shaft gently but thoroughly,sampling the oropharyngeal wall. Just as with the nasopharyngeal swab, the
oropharyngeal swab should now be placed intothe sample collection tube and sent to the
laboratory as quickly as possible.
