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.
AMTI Student Spotlight Beth Calhoun
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.

Okay, today we're going to learn how to do a tourniquet application. And, we're also going to learn how to palpate for the veins that we will be accessing for phlebotomy. What you'll need for this is you're going to need a tourniquet. You can use a new tourniquet or you can also use a tourniquet that's been previously used as long you have wiped it off and cleaned it before using. We never reuse a tourniquet once blood or other soil contamination is on the tourniquet. First thing you'll want to do is, obviously, you want to wash your hands or sanitize your.
Hands. And, I'm going to pretend a little bit with the hand sanitizer. You'll put a little bit in your palm. Rub until it's completely dry. Now, take just about fifteen to twenty seconds if you wash your hands. You need to hum quot;Happy Birthdayquot; twice to your self to make sure you've washed your hands enough. Once you've done that, you'll greet your patient, tell them who you are.
