What is a Blood Draw?

Phlebotomy is the practice of drawing blood from a vein, typically in the arm, using a needle. This crucial procedure, also known as a blood draw or venipuncture, is used to test the blood, read markers, and use the numbers to identify various medical issues. The blood is usually sent to a lab for analysis.

It’s crucial for patients to be aware of any additional requirements before having the blood drawn. For instance, some tests call for fasting (12 hours of fasting for checking blood sugar) for a specific period of time, while others don’t don’t require fasting.

EKG

An electrocardiogram (ECG), also known as EKG, is one of the most fundamental and simple procedures for ascertaining heart health. It is a simple, non-invasive procedure that checks your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. An EKG helps detect any heart-related issues either prior or during their actual occurrence.
