User: what are the special considerations for performing venipunctures on pediatric patients?

Weegy: Performing venipuncture on children under one year of age presents special challenges and requires expertise and skills unique to the pediatric population. [ Venous collections on children under one year of age will be performed by nursing staff in Pediatrics, NICU or Nursery. If an outpatient under one year of age presents to an outpatient location, skilled staff in that area will be responsible for collection. If skilled staff is not available in outpatient location nursing from one of the inpatient departments previously listed will be called to perform collection. Heel sticks or other skin punctures on children under one year of age may be done by laboratory or nursing personnel qualified to do procedure. ]

User: what is the definition of Antiocoagulants?

Weegy: Anticoagulant: An agent that is used to prevent the formation of blood clots. Anticoagulants have various uses. Some are used for the prevention or treatment of disorders characterized by abnormal blood clots and emboli. [ Anticoagulant drugs include intravenous heparin, which acts by inactivating thrombin and several other clotting factors that are required for a clot to form, and oral anticoagulants such as warfarin and dicumarol, which act by inhibiting the liver's production of vitamin K'dependent factors that are crucial to clotting. Anticoagulant solutions are also used for the preservation of stored whole blood and blood fractions and to keep laboratory blood specimens from clotting. ]
