DailyDirt: Phlebotomy 2.0

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Getting a shot isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it’s not exactly enjoyable, either. Early phlebotomists used leeches to draw blood from patients, but doctors don’t generally recommend that anymore — and sterile hypodermic needles are far more commonly used. However, if you’ve ever had one of your veins pierced (sometimes multiple times due to human error), you may have wondered why needles can’t be as painless as a mosquito bite. Well, maybe they can in the near future — it might cost a little more, though.
