Venipuncture is more than just putting a needle into a patient’s arm and drawing blood. Many clients are adults who are in good health, have visible veins, and are unafraid of the procedure to have their blood sample obtained for testing. However, that is not always the case. This final program in the three-part Blood Collection series will focus on special considerations when performing phlebotomy on specific populations, including pediatric patients, the elderly, women who have had mastectomies, patients who are obese, and those who have needle phobia.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Estimate the blood volume of patients in different developmental stages
  • Describe techniques used to alleviate the stress of venipuncture
  • Describe common behavioral reactions to venipuncture for children of different ages
  • Explain the blood collection procedure for newborns, children, and elderly patients
  • Identify precautions to be taken when drawing blood from women who have had mastectomies and patients who are obese
