Venipuncture is a perforation on a vein as part of a medical practice, basically to draw a blood sample and or to inject a drug into the body. This is done by intravenous cannulation. The venipuncture blood collection is carried out with the help of needle and syringes. Venipuncture is the oldest invasive procedures, which is carried out for five basic reasons and they are to collect blood for investigative purposes, identify the levels of blood components, and administer medications, nutrition, or chemotherapy, to eliminate blood due high presence of iron or erythrocytes and to collect blood which might be useful later in transfusion purpose. This can be possibly done with the use of venipuncture needle and with the immense increase in the blood test and blood collection, there is a proportional increase in the venipuncture needle and syringe market.
Excessive blood withdrawn may lead to hematocrit in older patients
According to Van Roekel, CEO Nuno Valentine, said that there are about half of doctors do not have sufficient funds to support a phlebotomist, and some are located in an area where there are no staff sufficient members. Mr. Kapadia, a chief medical officer of Iggbo, explains that bloodwork justifies about 75% if the medical decision. According to Van Roekel, there are 1 billion blood sample are drawn in the United States every year and out of which 50,000 blood draws in Houston daily. There are many literature stating that the excessive blood drawing from an individual causes a big setback in elderly person. A cohort study report states that public hospitals and university hospitals drew more blood for each test than that is followed in children's hospitals. For the basic metabolic tests, the volume of blood drawn by an university or public hospital laboratory was 2.5 to 10 times more required by any children's hospital, though there are similar tests and instruments used. Excess withdrawn of blood may lead to change in hematocrit which may lead to a down fall in elderly patient health. This is a major concern in the increasing number of older persons.
