Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR or sed rate) is a test that indirectly measures the degree of inflammation present in the body. The test actually measures the rate of fall (sedimentation) of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in a sample of blood that has been placed into a tall, thin, vertical tube.

The ESR is not diagnostic; it is a non-specific test that may be elevated in a number of different conditions e.g infections, tumors or autoimmune diseases;
It provides general information about the presence or absence of an inflammatory condition.
