Managing Discomfort

Obtaining a blood sample for monitoring may cause some discomfort. Here are some hints that may help minimize the discomfort of taking a sample:

  • Increase circulation to your fingers by washing your hands in warm water or shaking your arms.
  • Use the sides of the fingertips where there are fewer nerve endings.
  • Rotate the site (using different fingers or an alternate site if appropriate)
