  • How It Is Done
    The health professional drawing blood will:
    Wrap an elastic band around your upper arm to stop the flow of blood. This makes the veins below the band larger so it is easier to put a needle into the vein.
    Clean the needle site with alcohol.
    Put the needle into the vein. More than one needle stick may be needed.
    Attach a tube to the needle to fill it with blood.
    Remove the band from your arm when enough blood is collected.
    Put a gauze pad or cotton ball over the needle site as the needle is removed.
    Put pressure to the site and then a bandage.
