Phlebotomy/EKG Healthcare Technicians complete clinical tasks in the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners. Their duties vary with the practice’s location, specialty, and size. Phlebotomy/EKG Healthcare Technicians typically do the following: take the patient history and measure vital signs, help the physician with patient examinations, give patient injections as directed by the physician, and prepare blood for laboratory tests.
Additional duties include but are not limited to; disposing of contaminated supplies, sterilizing medical instruments, instructing patients about medication or special diets, preparing patients for diagnostic procedures, removing stitches, drawing blood, performing EKG’s, or changing dressings.
According to the Department of Labor, as the number of practices increases, the need for assistants will also increase, ultimately resulting in a projected 29 percent job growth from 2060 to 2026.
The growth of the aging baby-boom population will continue to increase demand for preventive medical services, which are often provided by physicians. As a result, physicians will hire more assistants to perform routine administrative and clinical duties, allowing the physicians to see more patients.
