On average our Nurses do 40 blood tests per day. Here are a few tips you can follow to make their jobs easier.
1. Drink plenty of water before your blood test. If you are dehydrated your blood can become sticky and difficult to draw.
2. Check if you will need a fasting blood test when you see your Doctor. This will help us arrange the best time (early morning) to take your bloods. Remember if its a fasting blood test no eating or drinking (only water) from 8.00pm the night pageant celebrity garments for girls ... before and to bring a snack and drink for after.
3. Wear clothes that can be rolled up or easily removed as we need to get to your upper arm.
Try not to worry, the thought of having it done is usually worse than actually having it done.See More
