Lessons in Venipuncture by Dr. Pre
As medical Students, we spend a full year learning how to draw blood and complete various laboratory tests. Once in practice, however, we will normally send our specimen samples out for testing, rather than do in-house. (Side-note: it gets fairly gruesome in this lab, I will leave it at that.) Our training enables us to better understand the results and ultimately to better serve our patients.
Check out my colleague’s recent blog post on our training in venipuncture. Along with being a pro in venipuncture, she also gives great advice.
So, without further ado, visit Dr. Pre’s blog post @: Simple Medicine
