This dynamic, full-color book presents all of the information you need to perform phlebotomy skills expertly. Whether new to the medical field or cross training from another Allied Health profession, Phlebotomy Technician Specialist is versatile enough to be used by learners and medical professionals that have not previously performed phlebotomy procedures. Two separate chapters on point-of-care testing separate enhanced skills such as taking a patientís vital signs, temperature, pulse, respirations, and blood pressures from specialized testing such as hematocrits, hemoglobins, blood pressure, coagulation studies, pregnancy testing and other point-of-care tests for more thorough coverage. With an approach that emphasizes the importance of customer service, this book helps facilitate a smooth transition between educational and work environments.
