Hi I'm Elora Murray at Fusion 360 Studios reporting for the Phlebotomy Training News Network Today we are discussing some facts behind phlebotomy certification. The ASCP, NAPT and NHA are among the organizations that provide phlebotomy certifications. A phlebotomy certification is required to work in California, Louisiana, Florida, Washington and Nevada. California also requires a state certification to work as a phlebotomist technician in that state.In addition, certified phlebotomists typically earn higher starting wages than those that are not certified.Also, many employers prefer phlebotomists who have received a National Certification.To become certified, one must take an exam after completing a phlebotomy.
Training course.Certifications typically need to be renewed every two years.Finally, Phlebotomists usually need to have completed a few hours of continuing education to recertify. That's all the news we have for you today. Im Elora Murray with the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Thanks for joining us.
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.

Hi I'm Elora Murray at Fusion 360 Studios reporting for the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Todays we're talking about the history of blood testing. The A, B and O blood types were identified in 1901 by Karl Landsteiner. This discovery allowed doctors to screen for compatible blood types prior to performing transfusions after 1907.In 19', Landsteiner discovered blood RH factor, allowing for safer transfusions.The Coombs test was introduced in 1945 to test for incomplete antibodies in the blood.Then, in 1947, blood testing for syphilis was required prior to receiving a marriage license.Also, blood tests to check for Hepatitis B were introduced in 1971.All donated blood began to be screened for HIV.
In 1985.Today, more than 10 tests are performed on all blood donations received by the Red Cross to ensure safe transfusions.Hopefully you enjoyed our history lesson on blood testing. Once again I'm Elora Murray with the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Have a great day.
