What is Blood Work?
Also known as a blood test, blood work is a blood analysis done after blood is drawn from a peripheral vein. With a blood analysis, it’s possible to check for biochemical and physiological conditions, along with check for proper organ function.
Patients can be better cared for and treated due to the results of blood work. Blood testing is a routine procedure, usually completed as a part of an annual physical. You may also need to have your blood tested if you or your physician suspects an illness or an infection, which may be diagnosed through a blood analysis.
What will a Blood Test Include?
When Dr. Brinley orders a blood test, you can expect a butterfly needle (small needle) to be used to draw blood from one of your small veins. A small pinch may be felt when performing the procedure.
Your physician may ask you to fast for 12 hours prior to a blood draw. However, once your blood has been drawn, no downtime is necessary.
