Phlebotomy DermalCapillary Punctures
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.
