Let Gravity Be Your Friend

To encourage the flow of blood to the hand when performing a capillary collection, allow gravity to work in your favor!

Position yourself so that you are holding the patient's hand in such a manner that the finger is pointed downward. Gravity will draw the blood to the fingertip and allow the procedure to be completed more efficiently.
