Syringe with Needle
Syringe with Needle are made up of a round cylindrical barrel, a close-fitting plunger and a tip where the hub of a needle is attached. Syringe with Needle comes in a number of sizes, ranging from .5 ml to 60 ml. A 1- to 3-ml syringe is normally adequate for injections given into tissues under the skin, also called subcutaneous injections, or injections into muscle, also known as intramuscular injections. Larger Syringe with Needle are used to add medication to intravenous lines and irrigate wounds.
Syringes are generally classified as luer lock syringe or non-luer lock syringe. This classification is based on the type of syringe tip. luer lock syringe syringes have tips that require needles that can be twisted and locked into place. This design prevents the needle from accidentally slipping off the syringe. Non-luer lock syringe syringes have tips that require needles that can be pressed on to the tip of the syringe without being twisted into place.
