Hi I'm Elora Murray at Fusion 360 Studios reporting for the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Most people know that phlebotomists draw blood but there is so much more to this field of work. Here are some things you probably didn't know about phlebotomy. Let's start by going back in time in in Ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian times removing blood from the body was considered a way to rid the body of evil spirits or illness. In addition phlebotomy isn't just for humans, veterinary offices draw blood to run tests on various animals. Something else you maybe didn't know, in early days phlebotomists were also barbers. The red white and blue barber pole is symbolic of drawing blood. Around the same time.
Phlebotomy procedures were referred to as quot;breathing a veinquot; and blood was drawn from larger veins in the neck or forearms. Another historical phlebotomy fact, quot;bloodlettingquot; was brought to the US by the pilgrims. They would draw blood from a patient until they began to feel faint. Furthermore, George Washington actually died from a botched bloodletting, when 9 pints of blood were drawn from him in attempts to cure a throat infection. Along the lines of phlebotomy, an arteriortomy is when an artery is punctured, usually in one's temple's.

Donation processes. So, here she is sitting in our chair. I'm going to lift your chair up, so you're in the donation position. Ready? Ok. I'm Geoff. I'm going to be drawing your blood today. Have you ever donated before? Yes, ok. And, which arm do you like to donate from? So, I asked her had she done this before and which arm she wants to donate with. Usually, people who have done it before know which arm works for them. So, there's two things I'm going to give her now. This thing to squeeze and then we're going to wrap this blood pressure cup around her arm. We use these as tourniquets, so not actually going to take your blood pressure. It's just going to put pressure against your arm. It's going to make your vein come up.
So, what I'm going to do is inflate this cup to about sixty. And, I'm going to have her start squeezing against it. This is going to bring her veins to the surface. And, make them bold so they're easier to find. I'm going to put this under your arm. So, right now. Hold your squeeze. I've found suitable veins. This is called palpating. I want to find the direction that the vein is going, how large it is and see if it's going to move around. Some veins are not anchored down by muscle and tend to move. I've selected the vein I want to use. And, so I'm going to use this aluminum sealing clip to mark it. I'm going to lower the pressure. You can go ahead and relax your grip. The veins going to go down.
