Blood Transfusions and Vaccinations
A blood transfusion is a procedure in which whole blood or parts of blood are put into a patient's bloodstream through a vein. A vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies.

Side-effect-prevention treatment is treatment designed to minimize the side effects that result from medical treatment, such as treatment for cancer. Side effect treatments can include things like adjustments to diet, drinking enough water, taking medication for nausea and vomiting, and splitting the treatment up into more rounds of smaller doses.
Central Line Draws/Dressing Changes
When compared to a typical IV line, a central line is larger, can stay in place longer, can deliver fluids at a greater volume, and allows blood to be drawn easier. Dressing change is the cleansing and covering of a wound.
