Cardio Phlebotomy Technician
A Cardio-Phlebotomy Technician is cross-trained in both Phlebotomy and EKG procedures and techniques including blood draws, specimen testing, infection control, how to operate, adjust and maintain EKG heart monitors, and how to understand the results of the electrocardiograph recordings. Cardio-Phlebotomy Technicians work in hospitals, Doctors offices, Urgent Care facilities, Cardiac Rehabs and more.
EKG (electrocardiogram) Technician
EKG technicians (also known as cardiac monitor technicians) work in hospitals or clinics and provide direct patient care. EKG techs are an important part of any cardiology department. They help in routine physical exams, as well as screening procedures before a patient undergoes surgery. To do so, EKG techs use specialized equipment, such as EKG machines, to measure the efficiency of the heart. They may perform and administer electrocardiograms, stress testing, Holter monitoring, and telemetry monitoring tests.
Phlebotomists are trained to draw blood from a patient (mostly from veins) for clinical or medical testing, transfusions, donations, or research. Phlebotomists collect blood primarily by performing venipunctures. The duties of a phlebotomist may include practising the required forms of asepsis, performing the skin/vein puncture, withdrawing blood into containers or tubes and restoring hemostasis of the puncture site. In this role, phlebotomists are also responsible for instructing patients on post-puncture care, ordering tests per the doctor’s requisition, affixing tubes with electronically printed labels, and delivering specimens to a laboratory.
Patient Care Technician (PCT) Certification Course
A patient care technician is mainly focused on working closely with patients in conjunction with nurses. PCTs, sometimes referred to as nursing assistants, help perform basic care for patients, such as assisting them in using the restroom, serving meals or changing bedding. Other responsibilities may include obtaining EKG(electrocardiogram) readings and monitoring vital signs, performing phlebotomy procedures, and providing emotional support to the patient and family.
