If you cannot understand these instructions as they are written then you should not attempt this procedure. Please get supervision from somebody who has had experience with phlebotomy. It is easier to draw venous blood from men rather than women, because men's veins tend to be more prominent. Use the forearm, or the antenatal vein in the crook of the elbow. Step-by-step instructions: #1. Make sure you have sterile 3cc syringes, still in the package. Do NOT reuse them! #2. Tie a belt, elastic tourniquet, or some sort of makeshift tourniquet around the upper bicep. #3. Wait about one minute and assess the veins. Slap the most likely one you see two or three times. This will make it show more. #4. When you find your spot, wipe it with alcohol, letting it dry, while you open your syringe package. Be sure you palpate it (touch it with your finger) first. #5. The syringe will be pulled to about 1/4 cc. Push the plunger back in all the way after taking the cap off (it's best to just take the cap off with your teeth). #6. Hold the arm steady, and go in at a slight angle, just to get under the skin to the vein. You may have to move it around a few times, but do so gently. Note: Always stick the needle in so that it is pointing away from the donor's hand and back toward his/her body. #7. When you get the vein, blood will show in the hub of the needle. Do NOT move the syringe, but slowly pull back on the plunger. The syringe will fill slowly, but that is normal. If you go too fast, you may collapse the vein. Pull back about 1/2 cc at a time, and as it fills, pull back more, in small increments. #8. When you have a syringe-full, press down with a cotton ball, (gently) over the site, and withdraw the needle. Have your donor hold it in place while you take the needle off (they unscrew) and squirt the blood into a glass to drink it. Do not take too long doing this, as it will clot. #9. Put a band-aid tightly over the cotton ball to prevent bruising. You can also obtain blood from the veins in the hand, but they are more painful to the donor.

  • To make it easier on your donor:

    If they do not have good veins, then practice on a muscular man first. Their veins pop right out. You will get the angle right that way. Also, if you can distract them at the moment of inserting the needle, that is good. Let the donor know they will feel a "bee sting." Do NOT use the wrist veins or the leg or ankle veins. They have a tendency to not clot. ONLY use the forearm veins unless you are trained professionally to take blood. Do NOT draw arterial blood, it is difficult, and dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.) Also, keep up with the amount of blood. The body can stand a blood loss of up to 420cc's every 60 days. Do NOT exceed that amount. You're not only risking anemia in your donor, but you will risk cardiac failure in them as well. Make sure your donor takes B12 vitamins. Make sure they eat a good deal of meat. It does not have to be rare, the vitamins are there. Symptoms of anemia: shortness of breath easy bruising pica (the craving for non-food substances) sore mouth and tongue (not thrush) fatigue sometimes depression ringing in the ears
