I'm Beth Calhoun. I studied Phlebotomy and I went through the MLA course, Medical Lab Assistant. The Medical Lab Assistant class was the greatest. I had a lot of fun doing the actual lab part of it; Streaking plates, making smears. It was a lot of fun to actually see where your phlebotomy samples wound up and how they got there. I was very fortunate when I first found out about AMTI, I actually had done a internet search trying to find schools in the valley and I came across AMTI.
And this has been my home ever since. I started with my Phlebotomy class here and I really wanted to come back and so I furthered with my MLA. My clinical externship right now, I'm at Lab Express on 5th McDowell I currently work in all departments and I kinda am a tool of all trades. Wherever they need me is where I go. Right now my focus is on hematology I help load the machine. I help pull the samples off the machine as well as I give the results to the.
8 Things You Didnt Know About Phlebotomy
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.

Danish Farook: The EKG Course is not only driven to teach you, the student how to do an EKG, but also how to read an EKG. So my focus is to make sure students understand cardiac physiology, they understand cardiac pathology and also arrhythmias and dysrhythmias. Understand when a patient has had a heart attack, understand when to notify your physician or your nurse right away. Well I don't think it's a secret, but the health care industry continues to boom and it's growing. The job opportunities within health care are going to grow just the way the demand for health care is. With our health care system growing and more.
People coming on to having health benefits, I think that increases the demand and that's obvious with the shortage of physicians, the shortage of nurses, we're gonna have that shortage in the departments where there's technicians. They get to do roleplay in respect to how they would interact with the patient, what questions they would ask and then actually perform an EKG from step one, to the last step from AZ and I think that gives them confidence and respect to when they do go out and do an EKG on a real patient,.
