8 Pediatric VP Complications Damage to Tissues Infection Cellulitis
9 Pediatric VP Complications Injury to the Child because of Restraints Decreasing in Total Blood Volume
10 Age & Procedures 0 6 months Heel Sticks 6 months 2 years Finger Sticks Hand Sticks & Venipunctures (doctor s orders only) 2 years & older Venipuncture
11 A dermal puncture can be performed on these areas of the foot
12 NEVER: Puncture Deeper than mm Puncture Through a Previous Site Puncture on the Posterior Curvature of the Heel or Arch
13 NEVER: Puncture Through a Bruised or Swollen Site Puncture the Heel More than Twice for any One Collection Use the Lancet More than Once
14 Heel Stick 1. Positively identify patient. 2. Wash hands & put on gloves. 3. Puncture the lateral medial part of the heel. NEVER puncture posterior curvature of heel! NEVER puncture the arch! 4. Make sure to inspect heel. Avoid areas with previous scarring or damage. 5. Warm the area for at least 3 minutes Warm tap water (39 42c) in towel or commercial heel warmer 6. Disinfect the area with a 70% alcohol prep pad. Scrub well.
15 Heel Stick 7. Do NOT use betadine. 8. Dry the area with a sterile gauze. Do NOT use cotton balls can interfere with blood flow. 9. Make sure the area is dry Any alcohol left on the skin will cause the specimen to hemolyze. 10.Hold the foot with a firm grip. Grasp the foot so that the heel is exposed between thumb & index finger. 11.Puncture the site at a 90 o angle, parallel to the bone. Stick across the heel prints. 12.Apply pressure to heel and activate the lancet.
16 Heel Stick 13.Make sure the blade retracts. 14.NEVER puncture deeper than mm can cause osteomyelitis or sepsis could injure bone, blood vessels, tendons, nerves, or cartilage. 15.Wipe off the first drop of blood, due to tissue fluid. Ease thumb pressure to the site and then apply intermittent pressure to obtain a good blood flow. 16. DO NOT MILK, SQUEEZE, OR MASSAGE THE AREA! It could cause the specimen to hemolyze and have excessive tissue fluid. 17.Collect the specimens in the proper tubes and correct order of draw. DO NOT SCOOP.
17 Finger Stick 1. Confirm identity of patient. 2. Wash hands & put on gloves. 3. Use only middle & ring finger for finger stick. 4. Clean finger with 70% alcohol prep pad. Scrub the area to remove dead cells. Rubbing the finger increases the blood flow. Let air dry or use a sterile gauze. 5. Apply pressure to the finger by wrapping your finger around the patient s finger. Never go above the first crease of the finger Hold hand downward for better blood flow by the pull of gravity
18 Finger Stick 6. Puncture the side of the fleshy pad area it has less fluid and more capillaries to cut. 7. Puncture finger across (perpendicular) the fingerprint, so blood will bead up. If you puncture finger in line (parallel) with the fingerprint the blood will flow down fingerprint.
19 Finger Stick 8. Wipe off the first drop of blood it is contaminated with tissue fluid and therefore it will dilute the specimen. 9. A second drop will form and should be collected when touched by the tip of the micro collection device. 10. Let the capillary blood flow freely down into the tube on contact. If blood becomes jammed in the collection top, gently tap on a hard surface to dislodge it so the blood can flow freely again to bottom of tube. 11. Gently apply pressure to finger and hold the puncture site in a downward position so the blood will free flow the tube. 12. DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE MILKING, MASSAGING OF THE FINGER, OR SCOOP THE BLOOD IN THE TUBE This can contaminate the specimen with tissue fluid.
20 Order of Draw for S.P. Blood Gasses Slides Platelets EDTA Tubes Other Additive Tubes Serum (Clot) Tubes
21 Quality Assurance for S.P. Make Sure Area is Completely Dry Do Not Squeeze Area too Tightly Document Blood Came from S.P. Document Any Problems Collect Platelets and Smears First Use Proper Collection Technique When Doing a Bilirubin
22 VP on Children Under 2 If the procedure must be performed on children under 2 years, then Use a gauge butterfly needle with a syringe (allows you to control the amount of vacuum applied) Use pediatric tubes for the transfer of the blood from the syringe method Use superficial veins on the back of the hand for all newborns and infants under 2 Remember never to use an area with edema, infection, or an IV line
23 Dorsal Hand Vein Procedures 1. Identify Patient. 2. Wash hands & put on gloves. 3. Prepare equipment: Butterfly needle and 3 5ml syringe method. 4. Select the hand that has visible veins. Warm the site if cold. 5. The phlebotomist s middle and forefinger should encircle the infant s wrist and are used to apply pressure to the dorsal veins. The phlebotomist s thumb is placed against the infant s fingers to flex wrist downward as the hand is examined.
24 Dorsal Hand Vein Procedures 6. Be careful bending the infant wrist. Bending the wrist too much can cause the vein to collapse. Lightly palpate the back of the infant s hand to select the best vein and the direction. 7. Once the vein has been chosen, release the finger tourniquet so the blood can circulate. If you don t see and feel a vein don t attempt to draw blood. 8. Disinfect back of hand with 70% alcohol prep pad. Let air dry for 30 seconds or use a sterile gauze to dry. 9. Reposition the infant wrist, apply finger tourniquet and flex the infant s hand. 10. Hold the needle with the wings of the butterfly wings bent together. The angle of the needle should be 5 o angle. Be careful until the vein is punctured.
25 Dorsal Hand Vein Procedures 11. As soon as the blood appears in the tubing of the butterfly, let the wings of the needle unbend. The blood may flow slowly, because venous blood is low. If no blood appears, gently reposition the needle. 12. Pull the syringe plunger gently to fill with amount of blood required. 13. Microcollection tubes should be filled directly from the hub of the butterfly. 14. Release the finger tourniquet to allow the vein to refill. If the blood flow slows or stops, gently rotate the needle. 15. Release fingers from the infant s wrist, quickly remove needle, and apply pressure to the site with a dry gauze.
26 Dorsal Hand Vein Procedures 16. Maintain direct pressure for 2 to 3 minutes or until the bleeding has stopped. Adhesive strips should not be used on neonates, because their skin is fragile. 17. Engage safety device from butterfly needle. Disconnect the blood filled syringe form the butterfly. 18. Connect the syringe to transfer blood into vacuum tubes or use a Sarstedt devise. Discard the equipment in sharps container when you have finished. 19. Comfort infant & offer a sucrose nipple, if permitted. 20. Label tubes. 21. Clean up area. Take off gloves. Wash hands. 22. Let nurse know that you have finished.
27 Neonatal Bilirubin Collection High levels of Bilirubin cause Jaundice (yellow skin coloring) Infants are placed under special UV lamps to lower Bilirubin levels Brain Damage Death Transfusion may be needed
28 Neonatal Bilirubin Collection Proper collection procedure is CRUCIAL Turn off UV lights to prevent breakdown of specimen Perform heel stick quickly to minimize exposure from light (must be protected during transportation & testing) Amber Colored Collection Tube Aluminum Foil to Cover Collection Tube Be sure to collect specimen carefully to avoid hemolysis, which could falsely decrease Bilirubin results Collect specimen as close as possible to time ordered (the increase in Bilirubin levels depends on timing)
29 PKU Screening High Levels of Phenylalanine Results in Brain Damage Proper collection procedure is CRUCIAL Perform heel stick collection Collect in capillary tube Apply blood to filter paper in pre printed circles Apply to one side of paper & allow to soak through
30 PKU Screening Proper collection procedure is CRUCIAL Blood should not be smeared, touched, applied more than once, or layered with successive drops Do not indent or scratch paper causes inaccuracies Transport to lab in biohazard bag or envelope
