English term or phrase: oropharyngeal swab
Definition from CBC Canada:
A nasopharyngeal swab can look like an extra-long Q-Tip or a plastic wand with a collection surface on the end. It is inserted up the nose, far back where the health-care professional collects a sample by swabbing. This is the method preferred by the World Health Organization in testing for COVID-19. However, there is another method of collection available to health-care professionals: an oropharyngeal swab. Instead of going up a patient's nose, the sample is collected orally at the back of a patient's throat.

Example sentence(s):
  • In the case of an oropharyngeal swab, should both pharyngeal pillars and tonsils be swabbed? The BMJ
  • Based on the SHERLOCK method, which stands for Specific High-sensitivity Enzymatic Reporter unLOCKing, the kit works by programming a CRISPR molecule to detect the presence of a specific genetic signature of SARS-CoV-2 in nasal swab, nasopharyngeal swab, oropharyngeal swab or bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) specimen. When the signature is found, the CRISPR enzyme is activated and releases a detectable signal. If the virus’s genetic material is found, a CRISPR enzyme generates a fluorescent glow. Biospectrum Asia
  • A wing of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the VRDL is normally engaged in research of communicable viral diseases like dengue, malaria and works from 10am to 4.30pm. Since it became a COVID-19 diagnostic lab, it functions round the clock, the team working in three shifts running screening and confirmatory tests of oropharyngeal swab samples collected in Madurai, Sivaganga, Virudhunagar and Ramanathapuram districts.

орофарингеален тампон

Definition from CBC Canada (адаптиран прев:
(втората половина на текста)
Назофарингеалният тампон може да прилича на извънредно дълга пластмасова пръчица с памук на края или пластмасова пръчица с повърхност за събиране на края. Той се поставя в носа, дълбоко назад (нагоре), където медицинският специалист събира проба чрез тампона. Това е методът, предпочитан от Световната здравна организация при тестване за COVID-19. Съществува обаче и друг метод за събиране, достъпен за медицинските специалисти: орофарингеален тампон. Вместо да се взема нагоре в носа на пациента, пробата се събира перорално в задната част на гърлото на пациента.

Example sentence(s):
  • Горни дихателни пътища * Трябва да се получат както с назофарингеален, така и с орофарингеален тампон; приемливи са само тампони от синтетични влакна с пластмасови валове. Двете проби трябва да бъдат представени в отделни контейнери * Поставете тампон в ноздрата паралелно на небцето. Оставете тампона на място за няколко секунди, за да абсорбира секретите * Натрийте задния фаринкс, като избягвате езика и сливиците - covidresource-bg.org  
  • Орофарингеален тампон (OФ) * ОФ тампон: Натрийте задната повърхност на фаринкса поне 3 пъти и извадете тампона, като избягвате допир със зъбите и езика. - glequip.com
