Okay, today we're going to learn how to do the dermal punctures on each other. The equipment you'll need is you'll need a lancet. Sorry, the needle lancet. You'll need your capillary tubes, alcohol swabs, your two by two gauze, you might need some tape. And then, you also need your gloves. Let's go ahead and put our gloves on. I've already obtained consent from my patient and informed them of the procedure.
As you see, I have two lancets out. You want to make sure that you always have backup equipment in case the lancet does not work. Go ahead and withdraw one of your capillary tubes. Place it out. Be careful. You might want to sit it on something that you know where it is, because it's plastic and it will blend in with the environment.

Okay, today we're going to use a banana to simulate a blood draw. The reason why it's good to use a banana to do a blood draw is with this banana skin, particularly a banana still has some green, along the ridges we can simulate what we might feel as we stick or incise a human. When we feel that little pop or give into a human's vein. It's good to use a banana for this. Okay, the supplies you'll need to do a banana blood draw is you're going to need hand sanitizer. You're going to need your tourniquet.
You're going to need your banana, preferably a green one. You're going to need your PPE, in this case it would be gloves. You're going to need your alcohol swabs, seventy percent isopropyl alcohol. And then, you're going to need your vacutainer needle and your tubes. We'll also need our two by two gauze. And, we'll need a pen to label with when we're done. I have my biohazard box nearby, in arm's reach. And, I also have an extra needle, an extra set of tubes in case there are complications.
