What is Phlebotomy?

Phlebotomy, also commonly referred to as Venipuncture, deals with the collecting and transportation of venous blood samples. Phlebotomists operate in a laboratory setting and in some cases provide the only personal contact that a patient has during the specimen collection process. For this reason, certified phlebotomists must also possess great interpersonal skills in order to explain procedures to patients and ease any fears that they may have. Phlebotomy is an important aspect of the diagnostic process and requires a great deal of skill and ability to work under pressure.
