The course will focus on skill development in the performance of a variety of blood collection methods using proper techniques and standard precautions. Blood collection procedures performed includes vacuum collection devices, syringes, capillary skin puncture, butterfly needles and blood culture, and specimen collection on adults. Collection of specimens from children and infants is discussed. Emphasis will be placed on infection prevention, patient identification, specimen labeling, quality assurance, specimen handling, processing, accessioning, professionalism, ethics, and medical terminology. Students will learn the theory and principles of CLIA waived laboratory tests and perform the tests in the student laboratory. The CLIA waived testing performed will include manual hematocrits, automated hemoglobin and glucose testing, urinalysis dipsticks, fecal occult blood, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and pregnancy testing. PREREQUISITES: No academic prerequisites. Note: Students enrolled in the PLAB 1323 as part of the ACC Health Sciences Academy will be required to be TSI complete in reading and writing. ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS AND TECHNICAL STANDARDS Essential functions refer to those physical, cognitive / knowledge and behavioral abilities required for satisfactory completion of all aspects of the curriculum as well as the development of professional attributes required by the program officials and clinical faculty of all students upon completion of the program. The essential functions consist of minimal physical, cognitive, affective and emotional requirements to provide reasonable assurance that students can complete the entire course of study and participate fully in all aspects of clinical training. All phlebotomy student applicants are introduced to the list of psychomotor, cognitive, and affective essential functions and technical demands during the Programs Information session. Once admitted into the program, students are provided a copy of the Phlebotomy Technician Student Handbook which contains the essential functions and technical standards. The Phlebotomy Technician Student Handbook can be found at: COURSE GOALS / RATIONALE This course serves to develop a working knowledge of the principles and procedures of phlebotomy, to produce accurate, skilled phlebotomists with strong ethical and professional values, and to encourage respect and understanding of all allied health professionals.
