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.
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
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.
