Phlebotomy and Cannulation

Phlebotomy and cannulation are essential medical clinical procedures involving the puncture of veins for blood collection or intravenous therapy administration. These procedures are performed by healthcare professionals to obtain blood samples for diagnostic testing or to establish intravenous access for medication administration or fluid therapy.

Phlebotomy: The process of withdrawing blood from a vein for diagnostic purposes or blood donation to assess overall health, detect diseases, or monitor treatment effectiveness.

Cannulation: The insertion of a thin tube (cannula) into a vein to facilitate intravenous therapy, such as medication administration, hydration, or blood transfusion.
