Jet Injectors for Needleless Medication Administration
Jet injectors have multiple applications and present a sensible alternative to classic injection methods that use a subcutaneous syringe, especially for patients with a needle phobia. Furthermore, the user benefits from simple operation. The administered medication is first put in the cylindrical container, the device head is placed on it and screwed in tight. The lever is cocked, hoisting the release button and making the injector ready for use. The jet injector and spacer can now be placed in a perpendicular position to the skin. The jet injection is carried out upon activation of the release button. The jet injector injects the medication approximately 4 to 6 mm below the surface of the patient's skin, creating a small welt.
Areas of Application for Jet Injectors
Jet injectors can be reasonably applied in the general practice, hospital and in care facilities. Patients with a needle phobia especially benefit from the gentle application. For example, local anaesthesia that is applied with a jet injector prior to treating wounds and injuries can help paediatric patients relax and reduce their stress in otherwise fear-inducing treatment scenarios. Another useful application is subcutaneous medication administration medicines like cortisone. The use of a jet injector is limited by intensive reprocessing. However, the use of a jet injector is confined to specific patient groups which makes it a sensible, time-saving tool for patients and medical personnel.
Cleaning, Sterilisation and Maintenance of the Dermojet Jet Injector
The jet injector should be sterilised after each treatment. It is recommended to sterilise the device in an autoclave at 134°C. Before that, it should be rinsed with distilled water. This robust device can be sterilised as often as you like and should be serviced after every 4,000 injections or after 18 months.
