Blood Collection Kit

August 27th, 2016 No Comments   Posted in Phlebotomy Facts

In this blog post I will be writing about one or two blood collection kit that is available online. These kits are just some of the kits you can find if searching for a blood collection kit. The order size for these blood collection kits are quite high so you might want to find a place that offers less or buy in bulk. One of the kits I have seen sold 30,000 sets at a time. That could be 2 to 4 years supply for a doctor office of a small size so try to contact the seller and see if you can get a smaller package of the blood collection kit if that is offered by the seller. If not just look for individual supplies and try to shop one supply at a time and get a cheaper deal this way it is a good way to find a good deal to shop around always remember that.

The first blood collection kit is nursing kit for blood collection this kit contains quite a few things visit to find out. This blood collection kit does cost so just check with the supplier to see this cost. I think this blood collection kit is going to be helpful for people who also need to inject patients because it is also be able to use for injecting as well as blood draw. This could fill up two kinds of supply needs at once the need to inject patients in the vein or the need to draw blood from a vein. It looks like it comes with a tube for each kit but only one tube. You may want more blood tubes depending on what you are doing with a blood draw.

Some phlebotomist likes to work for low amounts of money but you should not be one of these kinds of phlebotomist.

Therapeutic Phlebotomy

August 25th, 2016 No Comments   Posted in Phlebotomy Facts

People who go through therapeutic phlebotomy are going through it for one reason there is too much iron in the blood. This disease is called hemochromatosis it is a disease where you have to much iron in your body and this can result in loss of life if not treated correctly or lower life expectancy if not treated early on. You should only go to the doctor office and get the phlebotomy done when your doctor tells you to because you do not need to give blood at all times only times when it is recommended by your doctor.

What happens with the blood is the phlebotomy takes the red blood cells from the body through blood being taken out and put into a bag a medical bag of course. Then the body produces more red blood cells due to the bone marrow stimulating it and then the iron stored in your body is used to make those red blood cells.

All and all without this treatment you could lose your life quickly and not be able to get your organs to be ok for you. You should know unless hemochromatosis is caught early the damages can be irreversible but phlebotomy will still keep the life expectancy higher then it would be if you did not do this to get new red blood cells.
