    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.
    When the number of red blood cells becomes low than normal, this condition is known as anemia.
    The symptoms of anemia include dizziness, lightheadedness, unusual heartbeat, headache, pain, problems with growth, shortness of breath, pale or yellow skin, cold hands and feet, tiredness, or weakness.
    Anemia can be mainly caused due to blood loss, decreased or faulty blood cell production, and destruction of red blood cells.
    When the number of red blood cells becomes more than normal, this condition is known as polycythemia.
