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.
What to Expect in Phlebotomy School
Hi I'm Elora Murray and welcome to the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Potential phlebotomy students often wonder what to expect in phlebotomy training. Well today we are highlighting some things a student can expect to learn in phlebotomy classes. Phlebotomy training programs can be completed in as little as three weeks. These classes include a mix of lectures and handson experience. To add, phlebotomy students perform over 50 venipuncture's while training. Students and instructors often have their blood drawn by other students as part of their training. Not only that but students are also trained.
In the use of microscrope's and centrifuges, as well as safety precautions. Also, students are educated on laboratory processes, therapeutic drug monitoring and other potential career applications for phlebotomy. Certification exams are provided by the ASCP, NHA and other organizations. In California, potential phlebotomists must also complete a 40 hour externship. Hopefully now you better understand what to expect in Phlebotomy training. For the Phlebotomy Training News Network. I'm Elora Murray. Thanks for joining us.

Phlebotomy is getting blood out of the person through a vein, a finger, a heel, ear lobe. There's a lot of jobs out there, so it's a very good market to get into. Everybody right away thinks about the hospital. There's a lot of different other areas. You have a lot of outside labs, like Quest, LabCorp. You can also get them through doctors' offices. They aren't doing a lot of their own blood work in the office nowadays, so a lot of the insurance.
Companies will hire phlebotomists to go out to different homes to draw blood, or they'll have a lab at their main office. The last place people don't think about is veterinarian clinics because they're not people but they still need to diagnose what's wrong with the animals so they will hire phlebotomists.
