Adding Phlebotomy to Your Dental Practice
The increase in blood-derived products for hard- and soft-tissue regenerative treatment has increased the number of general dentists and specialists drawing patient blood during treatment. Although drawing blood is a common medical procedure, dentists do not get training in it at the undergraduate level and may only be exposed to it in post graduate residencies or through continuing education. The most common complication of phlebotomy involves injuries leading to paresthesia and forearm pain after phlebotomy to the venipuncture area due to medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve damage. The biggest factor in avoiding phlebotomy complications is getting proper hands-on training in these procedures. Additionally, knowing the anatomy of the arm and how to manage complications should they arise can assist in limiting liability for those dental practitioners drawing blood from their patients.
Learning objectives for this lecture:
- To educate dentist on the application, anatomy, overview, and basic laws that govern phlebotomy
