The detailed, 4-color laminated blood-collection atlas poster depicts venipuncture and skin-puncture sites for blood-specimen collection. Approximate locations of nerves, veins, and the brachial artery as they pass through the antecubital area are identified. The poster also features detailed text that discusses the precautions all specimen-collection personnel must know to prevent patient injury when drawing blood for clinical testing. A section on alternative venipuncture sites discusses mastectomy patients, foot and ankle veins, as well as other alternatives. The 17-in x 22-in poster is designed to be posted in classrooms, laboratories, medical offices, health care facilities, and other specimen-collection environments.
