Collection of Blood

It is a procedure done routinely for diagnosis. It can be done in various ways.

1) Capillary Sampling

  1.  The heel is the most useful area in newborns. 
  2.  The third finger is the common site in older children. 
  3.  The skin is to be cleaned. 
  4.  A single deep, vertical stab is given.

The different sites are:

  1. Veins of the extremities, especially the arm and hand. 
  2. External jugular vein. 
  3. Femoral vein.
