bezinking test is nothing but erythrocyte sedimentation rate.... high (i.e., elevated) ESR is indicative of the presence of inflammatory proteins, (i.e., an active inflammatory processes, such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic infections, collagen disease and neoplastic disease)....in pregnancy the esr values generally tend to be higher than normal.Gestational age and haemoglobin concentration both significantly influenced erythrocyte sedimentation rate. (P lt; 0.0001). For non-anaemic women the 95% reference range rose from 18-48 mm/h in the first half of pregnancy to 30-70 mm/h in the second half of pregnancy. For anaemic women the corresponding reference ranges were 21-62 mm/h and 40-95 mm/h, respectively.
