Phlebotomy technicians collect blood from patients and prepare the samples for testing. Most work in hospitals and clinics, but some collect blood for donation purposes. Phlebotomy technicians are important members of the health care team and often need to explain the blood-drawing procedure and put patients at ease.

Blood Test

Phlebotomy technicians are responsible for drawing samples of blood and preparing them for testing.

Blood Sample

Common tasks and duties include:

  • Explaining procedures to patients

  • Comforting patients that might be nervous about needles

  • Taking blood pressure, pulse, and respiration readings

  • Drawing blood

  • Applying bandages after blood is drawn

  • Sending blood, urine, or fecal samples to the lab for testing

  • Sterilizing equipment and cleaning workspaces

  • Updating patient medical records

Organizing Test Tubes

With constantly evolving medical technologies, phlebotomy technicians must know the difference in blood test types and should be aware of how medications and diet impact blood samples.
