Crazy Phlebotomy!

Phlebotomy, by looking at the term alone, you might not have any idea on what's it about. At least for me, when I first reading this term, I have no idea at all and I have to ask Uncle Google for it. I know I'm laoya lah! Haiya!

If you ask Wikipedia, it will tell u that phlebotomy is the process of making an incision in a vein. Wikipedia

So if I were to explain this term, I would say that it's a technique to draw blood. LOL.

I got to learn about phlebotomy while I was undergoing training at Cheras and that would had to be traced back to April this year. Ms Wong, my teacher had done a great job by not showing anger to me although I failed miserably for uncountable times. And during that time, I drew blood for most FOMEMA who came in. I was so pitiful of them. LOL

Actually the purpose of this entry is just to show how the awesome Dr. Yew performed the phlebotomy on his own's hand without any help. Enjoy watching the video and hopefully I can perform the same technique in future!! Well before that, I need to be brave enough to take my own's blood! =D
