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.
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.
