Newly revised, the second edition of this popular pocket guide provides a step-by-step procedure for collecting blood samples by venipuncture, capillary puncture, arterial puncture and through vascular-access devices. Includes discussions on equipment, patient identification and management, and the order in which tubes must be filled. This 4"x 6" pocket-sized spiral-bound booklet also provides criteria that ensure specimen suitability, including proper filling, specimen mixing, hemolysis avoidance, and appropriate transport and storage conditions. Emphasis is placed on prevention of needlestick injury, patient safety, and minimizing risk of infection. (58 pages.)
