About Phlebotomy Class

DEFINITION OF PHLEBOTOMY

The historical definition of phlebotomy is the practice of opening a vein by incision or puncture to remove blood for therapeutic purposes (also known as bloodletting). A more modern definition is the act of collecting blood from the veins, generally for the purpose of laboratory testing and/or analysis.
