    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. 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.
    The factors which can affect hemoglobin’s level include recent blood transfusion and pregnancy.
    The other tests which can be advised along with hemoglobin test depend upon the cause which needs to be diagnosed. The other tests include CBC, blood smear, iron studies, reticulocyte count, vitamin B12 and folate levels, and bone marrow examination.
