Phlebotomy is the process of making an incision in a vein with a needle. The procedure itself is known as a venipuncture.

Too often books on technical subjects are so bogged down in heavy, inflated verbiage that only trained professionals have a clue as to what the texts are saying. It is almost as if writers are trying to exclude those not yet trained or merely interested in the subject from gaining an understanding of the subject. Now, for the trained and untrained alike, Thomas John Watters has created the book to change that paradigm for phlebotomy—forever. 

Inspired by what he perceived as a lack of proper training in professionals and students alike, Watters decided to create a phlebotomy reference text that emphasizes the discipline’s core requirements and skills. Covering all of the basics in clear, concise language that is both accessible and highly informative, he presents the essential skills that are required to effectively, properly, and safely perform this job function at the highest level. From the history of phlebotomy, clinical laboratory divisions, and laboratory quality assurance to vascular system anatomy and physiology, first-aid-related issues, and performing venipunctures and capillary punctures, his text runs the gamut, covering the basics with a precision and thoroughness never before seen in a book of its kind.
