If blood is not flowing out of your finger, try these steps:

1. Wipe your finger with the gauze and try massaging again. The key is to form large droplets and have them fall into the device.

2. If you have not done so already, drink plenty of water 5-10 minutes before lancing your finger, wash your hands with warm water and increase your heart rate by jogging in place, taking a quick walk or doing several jumping jacks.

3. Lance another finger.
