What are Niche Heel Stick Safety Lancets used for?
The heel-stick method for drawing capillary blood is the most common way to draw new-borns’ blood. It is used to collect blood for new-born screening tests, usually before the baby leaves the hospital. The new-born blood spot test involves taking a small sample of your baby’s blood to check it for 9 rare but serious health conditions. When your baby is about 5 days old, a healthcare professional will prick your baby’s heel and collect a few drops of blood on a special card. This is sent off for testing. The heel prick may be uncomfortable, and your baby may cry, but it’s all over very quickly.
Helping your child cope with the Heel Stick test:
- Help your baby be calm
- Remain calm
- Turn down loud noises
- Talk to your child
- Offer babies something to suck
Also, available in White (Neonatal), Pink (Paediatrics) and Green (Special Care Baby Unit).
