Job Description for Phlebotomy Technician
The primary task for the phlebotomy technician is to draw blood from patients and test subjects. This is usually achieved by inserting a small needle called a butterfly into the vein. Phlebotomy is a skill that takes training and practice. It is usually not difficult to find venous access on a healthy patient. Other types of patients can be more difficult. Intravenous access can be hard to achieve on infants, young children, the elderly, diabetics, and the obese.
