The fourth edition of Phlebotomy: Worktext and protocols Manual covers all areas of phlebotomy, including modern coverage of equipment, safety protocols, arterial blood gases, point-of-care diagnostics, and practical phlebotomy skills. The procedures are presented in an illustrated storyboard fashion. The procedures cover the fundamental functions, and they are explained with step-by-step directions and fresh photographs in full color. The emphasis is maintained on application and practice through the use of clinical scenarios, practice advice, and additional features such as Avoid That Error. This practical worktext was written by phlebotomy specialist Robin Warekois, and it features a mock certification exam, competency checklists, a detachable bookmark that can be used as a tube guide, and a new video collection on the Evolve companion website.
A step-by-step guide outlining typical processes, complete with fresh pictures in full color, is presented in the guise of a thorough storyboard.
