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.

Today, we're going to perform a venipuncture on our patient. We're going to use it with what's called the straight draw method with just a regular multisample needle. And, we'll be accessing in the antecubital fossa of the patient's body. What you'll want to do is first you'll want to sanitize your hands. Or, if you do not have hand sanitizer available, you'll need to wash your hands in the sink, humming quot;Happy Birthdayquot; twice to yourself to make sure you wash your hands long enough. With the hand sanitizer, you put a small amount in your hand and you rub your hands until.
They're dry. Then, after that, you'll introduce yourself to the patient. Hi, I'm Trevor from the lab. The doctor's ordered some tests today. Do you mind if I collect these samples? So, the patient shook their hand no, they don't mind. So, with this, I've informed my patient. So, I've achieved informed consent.
