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.

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,.
