blood draws

  1. I had to have some labwork done yesterday and the phlebotimist told me not to make a fist, that there is a recent report out that shows that by making the fist during blood draws it raises the potassium level.
    Thought this might be interesting for those of us who have to do our own blood draws. Of course, maybe you had already heard this. Just thought I would pass it along, even though I haven't seen the actual report.
