Type your answer here... if a patient has an intravenous line (IV) in the arm, can the phlebotomist draw blood
if you draw blood from the arm from the surgical side, they could get swelling of the arm from poor circulation, called lymphedema. so they cannot have any blood draws, iv's, injections or blood pressue taken on that arm at all.

If a CNA is a certified phlebotomists then they could draw blood.
no IV drugs are compatible with blood products. Only 0.9NS is compatible with and can be hung with blood.
When asking why blood is drawn 'below' an IV site, it is presumed that this means distal (or further from the heart) when compared to the IV. The reason for drawing blood distal to the site of IV insertion is simple. When venous blood returns to the heart, administration of medications, electrolytes, and fluids is often through the IV. Therefore, we want to obtain blood which has not yet been affected by the medication or fluids given to the patient through the IV. For example, if a patient's blood magnesium levels are low, and we are giving therapeutic magnesium to increase these levels, we would want to monitor the effect of our treatment. Therefore, we would want to see the effect of magnesium infusion at a site without interference by the magnesium being infused through the IV. Therefore, we measure distal to the site of the IV, so that our blood sample represents the body's general levels magnesium, without influence from the IV line.
I am going to draw your blood for labs
you never draw BLOOD from an infant from the baby
Draw an rectangle then a square above it
The IV bag is suspended above the patient to allow the fluid to be gravity fed .
not necessarily, you want to find a vein by the heart to draw fresh blood
It is the introduction of water directly into the blood stream using an IV.
