BLOOD COLLECTION FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANTS: ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY

Blood is the elixir of life. With every beat of the heart, blood circulates through the vessels of the body bringing the cells life-sustaining oxygen, nutrients, and hormones while removing waste products that can be toxic. This process continues second after second, minute after minute, day after day throughout life.

This program designed for medical assistant training. It reviews the anatomic and physiologic considerations related to phlebotomy - the collection of blood - as well as describe the most common blood tests.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
~ Differentiate between the five types of blood vessels
~ Identify the locations of three preferred sites for venipuncture
~ Name the three formed elements found in blood
~ Name the four blood types
~ List seven common blood tests

BLOOD COLLECTION FOR MEDICAL ASSISTANTS: SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

Venipuncture is more than just putting a needle into a patient's arm and drawing blood. Many clients are adults who are in good health, have visible veins, and are unafraid of the procedure to have their blood sample obtained for testing. However, that is not always the case.

This program designed for medical assistant training. It focuses on special considerations when performing phlebotomy on specific populations, including pediatric patients, the elderly, women who have had mastectomies, patients who are obese, and those who have needle phobia.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
~ Estimate the blood volume of patients in different developmental stages
~ Describe techniques used to alleviate the stress of venipuncture
~ Describe common behavioral reactions to venipuncture for children of different ages
~ Explain the blood collection procedure for newborns, children, and elderly patients
~ Identify precautions to be taken when drawing blood from women who have had mastectomies and patients who are obese
~ Describe the proper approach to phlebotomy for patients with belonephobia

WONDERFUL WORLD OF BLOOD, THE

Bleeding-edge science

This fascinating film sees Michael Mosley put himself through some extreme challenges to discover how our blood protects us from infection, heals us when we're wounded, and powers our lives.

He undergoes experiments including entering a low-oxygen environment to supercharge his blood and boost his physical fitness; poisoning his blood with a vial of viper venom in order to see it clot; doing a state-of-the-art body scan to chart every artery and vein in his body; and going white-water rafting to discover how his blood's defences combat stress.

The programme explores the dark mythology around blood, and meets the scientists on the cusp of discovering whether there's any truth in the 'Dracula myth' íV that young blood can reverse the ageing process. Packed with absorbing stories, this is a comprehensive take on a subject that's central to our survival.

BLOOD & GUTS: A HISTORY OF SURGERY - BLEEDING HEARTS

Operating against the clock, bizarre experiments on groundhogs, and a crazed rabbi and a pigs heart; Bleeding Hearts is the story of heart surgery.

Pumping 48 million gallons of blood in a lifetime, the heart is the engine room of the body; if it stops, we stop. Once the heart stops beating, we can survive for less than four minutes. So how to operate on it without killing the patient? This central conundrum made heart surgery almost unthinkable until just 50 years ago.

This educational programme traces the race against time that heart surgeons faced as they pursued one dream - to be the first to successfully operate on the body's most vital organ.

BLOOD & GUTS: A HISTORY OF SURGERY - BLOODY BEGINNINGS

Body snatching, boiling bones, wilful ignorance and the birth of observation, accidental discoveries involving turpentine and egg white, and a simple cut finger: Bloody Beginnings is the story of trauma surgery.

All of us are likely at some point in our lives to go under the knife, and if we do, we should thank our lucky stars that we are alive now and not 150 years ago. For much of history, surgeons killed more people than they saved. To get to where we are today we have had to overcome four major obstacles to successful surgery:
~ understanding anatomy,
~ managing blood loss,
~ overcoming infection and
~ discovering pain relief.

BLOOD & GUTS: A HISTORY OF SURGERY - FIXING FACES

Syphilis, bondage, an Indian brick maker and a Gentleman's Magazine, and the terrible effects of aeroplane fuel: Fixing Faces is the story of plastic surgery.

Plastic surgery is not a modern phenomenon. It started over 400 years ago with a spate of botched nose jobs, so badly engineered that the nose would fall off if the wind blew too hard. It marked the birth of a whole new obsession.

Surgeons gradually became entranced with the idea that not only could they fix the body, but now they could even fix our sense of self-esteem.

BLOOD & GUTS: A HISTORY OF SURGERY - INTO THE BRAIN

Lunchtime lobotomies, microchips implanted inside bulls' brains, presidential daughters, a lifesaving piece of household wire and CIA-funded research

Into the Brain is the story of brain surgery. More than any other surgery, operating on the brain, from misguided psychosurgery to pioneering neurosurgery, has taught us who we are. But the most complex organ in the body hides its secrets well, and surgeons have ended up travelling some dark roads on their extraordinary journey to map the human mind.

The brain is our most complex organ. One hundred years ago, cutting into the brain was a terrifying prospect for both patient and surgeon. Harvey Cushing, the so-called "father of neurosurgery", revolutionised brain surgery. Before him, it was little more than bloody butchery which killed around 70% of patients.

Michael travels to Yale University to see Cushing's archive: a collection of over 1,000 perfectly preserved human brains. The infamous Walter Freeman was responsible for the lobotomisation of thousands of individuals. His brutal operations - often using ice picks driven into the brain through the eye socket - left many patients with life-long psychiatric problems.

Michael meets one of Freeman's victims, 59-year-old Howard Dully, who was lobotomised at the age of 12. Michael also takes part in a "mind control" experiment at University College London to help surgeons map the brain. Using "transcranial magnetic stimulation" or TMS, the experiment asks how it will affect Michael's ability to perform even the most simple of tasks.

Finally, Into the Brain shows an extraordinary operation on 28-year-old florist Kathryn, who has a malformed blood vessel in her brain. Incredibly, Kathryn must remain fully conscious as her brain is operated on to ensure no damage is caused. This remarkable operation would have been impossible without some of the pioneering surgeons of the past.

A Neo-Nazi obsessed with the perfect stitch, organs from prisoners, patients bombarded with radiation, chance discoveries involving bottles of good quality olive oil: Spare Parts is the story of transplant surgery.

At first, transplant surgery seemed a craze, a one-off experiment. But pursuing fame, prestige and world wide acclaim, surgeons took increasingly extraordinary risks. What lay ahead of them was a battle to tame the world's most sophisticated fighting machine - the immune system.
