Getting a Blood Test from a Medical Laboratory Technician

MLT = Medical Laboratory Technician

Patient: I came to this lab to have my blood drawn.

MLT: You are in the right place. Roll up your left sleeve and have a seat.

Patient: What am I being tested for?

MLT: Your doctor wants to know what your white blood cell count is.

Patient: What does my white blood cell count tell him?

MLT: Usually if your white count is off, the doctor suspects an infection.

Patient: How much will it hurt?

MLT: It is only a pin prick. I have to put this tourniquet on your arm to make the vein easier to find.

Patient: Is that my blood going into that tube?

MLT: That blood that just filled the tube is all that I needed. Thanks for coming in!

Patient: My doctor says that I need a blood test.

MLT: I can help you with that. Just have a seat and roll up your left sleeve.

Patient: What are you taking my blood for?

MLT: Your doctor has requested a check of your white blood count.

Patient: What information does that give him?

MLT: If your white blood cell count is off, it could signal an infection somewhere in your body.

Patient: Is a blood test painful?

MLT: I am putting a tourniquet on your arm to plump up the vein. It will only feel like a little pin prick.

Patient: My God, that hurts!

MLT: That was it! Thank you for coming in today.

Patient: The doctor sent me over here to have my blood drawn.

MLT: Certainly, please have a seat and roll up your left sleeve.

Patient: What is this test for?

MLT: Well, today your doctor wants us to check your white blood cell count.

Patient: What does that tell him?

MLT: Well, if it is elevated, you might have an infection.

Patient: Will the blood test hurt?

MLT: It is only a little pin stick. I am going to put a tourniquet on your arm to puff your veins up.

Patient: Ouch!

MLT: There we go! I got the blood that I needed.
