Syringes for Injection & Punction
Medical syringes are an important consumable and are used in almost every medical discipline. While two-part syringes consist of a cylinder with piston, three-part syringes are additionally equipped with a rubber stopper at the base of the piston, allowing for injections with a particularly small dosage.
Syringes are not only used to inject medication and vaccinations, they can also be used for drawing blood and to irrigate wounds. In general, syringes are sterile single-use products that are hygienically disposed of in sharps containers after use. This lowers the risk of infecious transmission and cross contamination. Disposable syringes are available in different sizes and styles for various application purposes (e.g. vaccinations, wound irrigation, injections). The Inject 40 Solo from B.Braun, for example is used to inject insulin and the Omnifix Solo disposable syringe is available in different sizes and guarantees safe injections.
In addition to syringes with Luer connector, where the needle is attached to the connector, we also offer disposable syringes with Luer-Lock connectors (e.g. the Sterican needles), where the needle is screwed onto the syringe. This ensures that the cannula is securely attached to the syringe and will not spall easily when applying thicker medications.
Disposable Syringes for Particularly Small Amounts of Medication
In addition to the standard disposable syringes with a volume starting at 2-3 ml, there are also special syringes with particularly small volumes that are used for the application of specific medication. The two most used products are insulin syringes and heparin syringes. Both differ from common syringes in regards to the scale.
When administering insulin or heparin, the volume is measured in units instead of ml. The ml-scale can, however, be printed on the syringe as well to compliment the units-scale. For medications that are measured in very low amounts and in ml, there are fine dosing syringes, like the Ominifix F Solo Fine Dosing Syringes, with a scale that can be read down to the hundredth millilitre. Syringes of this size often have a displacement tip to ensure that as little medication as possible remains in the syringe.
Function and Application
To inject, rinse or to administer fluids, the syringe is filled by pulling up the piston and using a withdrawal cannula. Such a cannula is, however, not used for enteral nutrition or the administration of medication through a feeding tube. The pressure generated during the injection depends on the piston of the syringe. As a result the medical staff should be careful to use the appropriate syringe for an injection. It is, for example, recommended to use syringes with a volume of at least 10 ml for port injections, to avoid catheter disconnection or catheter tearing.
To withdraw body secretion or tissue with an empty syringe, or one partly filled with an additive (e.g. EDTA for blood samples), a syringe with attached needle is placed before aspiration.
Syringes without needles or cannulas are also used to secure catheters, balloon probes and tracheal cannulas inside the body. Depending on the manufacturer's instructions, the balloon is blocked with a certain amount of air, sterile Aqua destillata or sterile saline solution. It is unblocked by simple aspiration.
Special needle-free enema syringes or blister syringes are used for enemas. Blister syringes are also used for irrigating and rinsing wounds. If used with disposable catheters, they can even be used for difficultly accessible wound cavities. Manual bladder irrigation, on the other hand, is carried out with a bellows bottle and a catheter, as they generate less pressure than an irrigation or blister syringe.
In biomonitoring, syringe cylinders are used as attachments for certain analyses.
