What is Venipuncture?

Venipuncture is the procedure through which blood is collected from the veins usually done for laboratory testing or clinical purpose.

There are some risks associated with Venipuncture

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Fainting
  • Nerve damage
  • Hematoma formation
  • Infection

How this is performed?

Blood is usually collected from the vein located at the back of the hand or inside of the elbow.

  • The site where blood is to be withdrawn is cleaned with an antiseptic.
  • A band is put around the area of upper arm and pressure is applied to make the vein swell.
  • A needle is then inserted in the vein and blood is collected into an airtight tube attached to the needle.
  • The band is removed and pressure is released.
  • The needle is taken out and the area is covered with band-aid to prevent bleeding.
