This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    When there is a formation of a clot deep in the veins within the body, most frequently in the lower legs; it is known as deep vein thrombosis. These clots may grow large in size and cause blockage of blood flow in the lungs. This can lead to swelling, pain, and tissue damage in the legs.
    Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a condition in which there is activation of the clotting factors. These factors are then used up throughout the body. Due to this, numerous tiny blood clots are formed. The affected person falls at risk of excessive bleeding. It can be a life-threatening condition that can occur due to sepsis, surgical procedures, poisonous snake bites, liver disease, and after childbirth.
