Okay, this time we're going to talk about the winged blood collection set, or it's also commonly called the butterfly. There's different name brands out. We have different styles, different packaging. So, you want to make sure that you choose the right one to suit your patient. With this patient, I'm going to choose to go with the twentythree gauge needle. There's also the twentyone gauge needle, if you have larger veins that could support it.
But, with this one, like I said, I'll go with the twentyone gauge needle. I've already asked the patient for consent. He's given me consent. I've gathered all my supplies. Have my gloves, have my biohazard bag, clean tourniquet. I'll need a holder for my winged collection set. Have my alcohol pads, have my gauze, and I have my tape. One of the things you want to go ahead and do is, of course, pull off a piece of tape,.
