A syringe is a medical instrument that is used to administer vaccinations and other serums via injection. It has a needle attached to it that breaks the skin and enters a vein or artery and a pump that when released, pushes liquid straight into the bloodstream. Syringes make up an important part of modern health care, but they must be used in exact accordance with FDA rules and regulations so as to not put one’s patients at risk of various blood-borne diseases, such as HIV, AIDS, or Hepatitis, among others. Therefore, it is extremely important to note that a disposable syringe is meant to be used a single time before being safely disposed of. Disposable syringes are made out of plastic, which enables the user to be able to safely and easily dispose of them after their use without putting themselves or others at risk.
They are non-toxic (environmentally friendly) and can be disposed of safely
They are the most cost effective syringe being made
They are easy to handle and thus require minimal instruction, training or explanation before use
They are fairly durable, as they are made out of plastic
They are ready to use upon opening as they are pre-sterilized
Luer Lock Syringe: This type of syringe uses a leak free system to connect the needle to the syringe. The needle is able to be attached to the syringe in a secure manner while giving the syringe the added ability of being able to be disposed of without needing to remove the needle, in an eco-friendly way.
Luer Slip Syringe: Similar to the Luer Lock Syringe, the Luer Slip Syringe stops leaks from happening by eliminating the screwing mechanism to attach the needle onto the syringe. Rather, the user can simply slip the needle onto the syringe for a tight fit. Luer Slip syringes are therefore often preferred by medical professionals when administering thinner solutions.
