Insulin Syringes & Needles
An insulin syringe includes three parts:
The needle is short and thin and covered with a silicone layer to be capable of passing through the skin and diminish the pain. The barrel is long and thin and holds the needle. Several lines are marked on the barrel to measure the number of insulin units. The plunger is short and thin and fits into the barrel. It slides up and down to pull the insulin into or out of the barrel.
Syringes are designed in different sizes to deliver different doses of insulin. Use the size appropriate for the dose of insulin you need. In order to choose an appropriate syringe you should consider the number of units you need to give and how well you can see the markings on the barrel. The size of a barrel determines how much insulin a syringe holds and the length of a needle determines how far it can penetrate into the skin. Shorter needles are deemed safer as they do not penetrate in muscles. Insulin syringes are disposable and you can use it only for one time. This will keep needles sterile and prevent the risk of infection from used needles.
Several other criteria are important to consider while choosing an appropriate insulin syringe, check with your doctor to ensure you are using an appropriate insulin syringe and needle. A good insulin syringe provides a safe and easy injection into the bloodstream and reduces patients’ discomfort. The needle should be sharp enough to penetrate the skin easily without too much pushing. Also, the needle should have a thin wall to improve insulin flow rate.
