This image depicts a female patient seated in a clinic, who was in the process of having some blood extracted from her left arm’s antecubital vein during a phlebotomy procedure. The two gloved hands of the phlebotomist are seen securing the venipunture site: left hand holding the needle tipped catheter; right hand holding the purple topped interchangeable blood collection tube. See PHIL 13481, for a closer view of the phlebotomy site.
