DESCRIPTION

An insulin syringe is a medical instrument that expressly designed to administer insulin into the body via injection. It has a short, fine needle attached to it that breaks the surface of the skin, and a pump that, when released pushes and deposits insulin, a hormone secreted by the pancreas into the body. Insulin syringes make up an important part of modern health care for diabetics suffering from both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, but they must be used in exact accordance with FDA rules and regulations so as to avoid running the risk of various blood-borne diseases, such as HIV, AIDS, or Hepatitis, etc. For this reason it is extremely important to note that insulin syringes are only meant to be used a single time, before being safely disposed of.

BENEFITS OF INSULIN SYRINGES

The insulin syringe is specially manufactured so that one can administer insulin into their body to combat Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes

They are easy to use and require minimal instruction to learn how to handle

They are specially designed for U-100 Insulin, the standard type

They come with shorter, finer needles because insulin injects under the skin instead of into muscle, so it doesn’t have to go in as deeply, which also means the injections will be less painful

The markings on the sides are in insulin units so that it is easier to measure out your dose of insulin

They come pre-sterilized

USAGE

Insulin syringes are almost exclusively used by people who suffer from Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, to administer insulin into their bodies.

TYPES OF INSULIN SYRINGES

Luer Slip: The insulin syringe only comes in one variety, and that is Luer Slip. This means that the needle is slipped onto the syringe rather than screwed into place. It is a leak-free system and is ideal for liquids with a thinner consistency.

FAQS

Can I reuse my insulin syringe?
No. They are meant only for a single use; anything other than that is in direct violation with FDA rules and regulations. Reusing needles dramatically increases the chances of spreading blood-borne diseases such as HIV, AIDS or Hepatitis.
Can I sterilize my insulin syringe and THEN reuse it?
No. See above question
What is the purpose of the plunger cap?
It is a form of child-proofing, to ensure the syringe doesn’t accidentally get filled with anything other than insulin.
What does the ml/cc on the insulin syringe stand for?
ml stands for milliliter, and cc stands for cubic centimeter. One ml is the same as one cc.
Why is the needle on the insulin so short?
Unlike most shots, insulin only needs to go into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, which is the layer of fat directly under the dermal layer. Most shots are administered into the muscular tissue and thus require longer needles.
What do I do if the packaging is already open?
If the packaging is already opened, the syringe will no longer be safe to use. The sterilization process will have been compromised. You must immediately dispose of the syringe without using it.
