    1. Practice the procedure for performing a capillary puncture following the step-by-step procedure. 2. Demonstrate your understanding of this lesson by: a. Completing a written examination successfully, and b. Performing the procedure for capillary puncture satisfactorily for the instructor. All steps must be completed as listed on the. along with the proper capillary puncture method. Students will also be able to follow accurate order of draw, perform special collections, and understand the types and functions of blood testing. Experience simulations of obtaining swabs for culture, performing venipuncture and capillary puncture, and hematology testing.

    Performing the ‘squeeze’ with your non-dominant hand will allow you to hold the collection tube to the puncture site with greater dexterity (using your dominant hand). For capillary collection devices never attempt to draw blood into the collection tube manually by squeezing a pipette bulb. When heldFile Size: KB. Pre-warm infant heels or the fingers of older children and adults when performing a skin puncture so that excessive squeezing or “milking” of a puncture site is not necessary. To prevent turning specimens into garbage during the collection process, be mindful of these preanalytical variables that .

Venipuncture is the extraction of blood from the vein by using a syringe and a needle, while capillary puncture, also know as “finger stick”, is the collection of blood by puncturing the palmar surfaces of the fingers, ear lobes, big toe (in infants,) with the use of a lancet and a capillary tube or an appropriate specimen holder.

Upon completion of this lesson, students will be able to perform and demonstrate skin puncture procedures to obtain capillary blood specimens for blood glucose screening using a lancet, reagent test strips and a glucometer while observing all universal precautions.

Also, the phlebotomist being new to performing capillary puncture supports that the delay could have been significant for the clumping of the blood to occur. This is so, because the phlebotomist was good in venipuncture, however in comparison to venipuncture, the thromboplastin is released much faster in case of cut made on the skin.
