Importance of accurate needles and syringes

     The right size of syringe and needle is extremely important to consider because right size inserts properly, reduces pain intensity, and exact dose enters in the body. These items have particular designs and sold separately in the market.

Precautionary measures

      Drug injecting process is dangerous, so perform it carefully and always use your own equipment to avoid infectious germs transfer and moreover, the poor injecting process will harm your muscles and even can paralyze them.

Used equipment must be disposed of properly because it has harmful germs

Injection basics

        You should use a thick and long needle so that it can easily reach the targeted muscles.  The pink long needle of size 21g × 1.5 and blue long needle of 23 g × 1.25; you need both, one for drawing purpose and one for injecting purpose.  One dose of 2ml fluid can be injected into the muscles safely.

Size selection

Size selection must be based on sound principles to avoid errors.

     Syringe Sizes: Syringes have labels to show the quantity syringe can intake; syringes capacity is measurable. The syringe has a milliliter (mL) label that determines its capacity; 1cubic centimeter is equal to 1 mL.

        You must be careful about syringe size when you are injecting at home. If you have the prescription to injecting 3 CC drug quantity, then the syringe must be of the exact size to hold 3 CC or slightly higher. If you use small syringe than it will be painful to inject again the remaining dose, while if the syringe is larger than the requisite size, then it will be difficult to see exact markings with accuracy.

       Needle Sizes: Needles have different labeling mode than syringes, such as 123G123. The first number on a needle shows the gauge number; a higher number means thin needles. In the same way, the second number shows needle length in inches. For instance, a needle of 33 G ½ has 22 gauge and half an inch length. 

      Needle Gauge:

  If you would have to inject the small drug dose, a needle of high gauge number and thin size will be a good option as it will cause less pain, while the wider needle of low gauge number can be used when you are recommended for administering the high dose.  It will deliver the dose fast. Moreover, vein size is also important to consider, a thinner needle for medium to small vein size can be used.

 

       Needle Length: It depends on the individual user size and also it depends on the body site where it will be inserted.

Injection types

      Subcutaneous injections: This injection only reaches from skin to the fatty tissue layer. For these shallow injections, small size needle is required; the size length of 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch and 25 to-30 gauge is a good option.

        This is the region between muscle and skin and most of the drugs are administered here. The drug acts in a fast manner when injected here.

     Intramuscular injections: These injections are injected into the muscles; these are deeper, so intramuscular injections require long and thick needles. The best-considered size for needles is 20 to 22 G that is an inch or inch +half long. Examine the body fats at the site where you have to inject. A thin person can use an-inch while for the heavier side the user can take needle of inch+ half long size.

        Safe procedures of injecting minimize the hazards and risks. The most import things to consider are the needles for injecting accurately, size of the barrel, and a right needle to draw the substance from the barrel.

        Testosterone injections: For this, the intramuscular shot is the best option where injection has 22-23 gauge number and length of 1 to 1.5 Inch. Adults prefer to use a needle of 21 Gauge (green) or 23 Gauge (blue).

        Glutes injection: It is also called as the buttocks injection, usually, people inject into glute site as it has deep and large muscles. This region has less number of blood vessels and nerves, so you have less painful feelings.

        Glutes rotation is also the option if you inject biweekly. Usually, the green syringe is used to draw the drug, while blue is used for injecting purpose for this region.

        Thigh injections: People prefer to inject this site as it is easy to manage. Thigh injections are usually used to inject the drug here. Use green 1.5 × 21g colored to take out and inject with 1.25   × 23g blue syringe.

        Deltoid injections: The shoulder site can also be considered for injections.  Use the only central and thickest deltoid area above armpit. Take out with the help of green 1.5 × 21g while injecting with the help of blue 1 × 23g.

      Intramuscular IM injections are best for deltoid muscles where 1–1½ is the needle length and 22–25 gauge, however, weight differences also result in differences in needle sizes.

       Chest injections: Only experienced persons can use this site for injecting purpose.   If you open more sites, it means more rotation that will minimize the risk of scar tissue build-up.

Only inject the deepest area and take out with the green 1.5×21g and inject with blue 1×23g.

Other areas that you can use for injecting are Triceps and Biceps muscles.

The 2ml syringe

        It has high quality and rubber plunger for smooth working; it is available in multiple colors to avoid the sharing. Needles of size 40mm in green and pink color for taking up purpose are uses.  This has usually 21 Gauge and 1½ inch needle size.

Swabs

     Sterile swabs are used to rub the place for a soothing purpose. Use alcohol swabs for skin cleaning before injecting.
