It is closely associated with Venipuncture which is the practice of collecting blood samples from the vein. Venipuncture also has similarities with the practice of bloodletting, which is an ancient medical practice that is no longer followed in modern medical science. Phlebotomy is also used as a treatment for certain diseases like primary & secondary polycythemia and hemochromatosis. A person who practices Phlebotomy is called a phlebotomist.
