Lab Draws

Having lab draws completed is never pleasant. However, the unpleasantness can certainly be minimized when it is performed by clinically trained medical professionals like those employed by Universal Home Care.

Here, our caring clinicians are experienced in the process of drawing blood when required to perform lab draws. And people with serious medical conditions may require lab draws to be performed on a fairly regular basis.

Lab draws can provide medical professionals with a vast amount of information regarding the current health of a patient. Once a lab draw is completed, doctors may look at how the blood is currently composed, such as the level of white cells or the amount of iron and more within the blood. This gives them important information about the overall condition of a patient.

Lab draws can also be conducted to measure any number of specific levels within a patient. For instance, they can be used to check the levels of medications that may be administered. They can also measure various hormones and signals that can give them very specific information about how certain systems within the body are functioning.

This type of information is critical for a number of reasons. During ongoing treatment, the information obtained from lab draws can help inform the treating physician about how well the treatment is progressing. When managing an ongoing or chronic illness, various types of lab draws can be used to monitor the condition to ensure that it is not progressing or that the medication levels in the blood are at reasonable levels. The decision about what treatments to administer and at what levels to administer them at is often made only after careful consultation with blood draw information.

You can rest assured that our staff is trained in proper lab draw technique so as to minimize patient risk and discomfort while obtaining reliable samples that can provide important health care data.
