Hypodermic Needles, Sterile 100/Box
BD Hypodermic Needles are widely used in hospitals due to their increased saftey and efficiency. These needles provide high quality results, allowing medical healthcare workers to perform treatments as safely and precisely as possible. While BD Hypodermic Needles provide an efficient tool for medical practitioners, their trade off is that sometimes the application of these needles can lead to pain and uncomfortable effects. Depending on the situation, practitioners will decide to either use standard needles for larger injections or for precise injections, they will use ultra-thin BD Hypodermic Needles to deliver accurate doses as needed. In both cases, by utilizing BD Hypodermic Needles medical healthcare professionals can ensure unbeatable quality care.
BD Hypodermic Needles are a hollow needle used with a syringe (sold separately) to inject substances into the body or extract fluids from it. They may also be used to take liquid samples from the body, for example taking blood from a vein in veni-puncture. Large-bore hypodermic intervention is especially useful in treating catastrophic blood loss or shock.
Benefits for BD Hypodermic Needles
- Easier and more comfortable administration of medication
- Larger gauge needles are available for eased administration of thicker fluids
- Variety of lengths and gauges that can be used on patients of various sizes
- Eliminates risk of reusing needles and keeps hygienic conditions in check
- Protects caregivers from accidental needle sticks and risks of infection
- Improved flow of medication
- More precise needle placement and injection accuracy
- Longer shelf life compared to other hypodermic needles
Hypodermic Needles are essential pieces of medical equipment used in thriving medical industry. When inserted into the skin, hypodermic needles are used to deliver a variety of liquids, including medicine and nutrition, into a person's body. The size of the needle itself helps to determine what sort of solution it is best used for: larger needles are typically used for intramuscular injections, while slimmer needles are used for injections that are just beneath the skin. Hypodermic needles play an essential role in modern medicine and can be the deciding factor when a life is in the balance. Hypodermic needles provide an accurate and punctual way to deliver lifesaving medicines, ensuring accuracy, flexibility, and speed when they are most urgently needed. Without Hypodermic Needles filled with immunizations, antibiotics, or other life-saving medication, the medical industry would be unable to treat many diseases efficiently. They also allow for a more efficient transmission of anesthesia, which helps alleviate the suffering of many patients. Medical professionals rely on hypodermic needles to quickly and accurately administer and deliver medication to those in need.
instructions on How to Use BD Hypodermic Needles
1. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before handling the needles.
2. Choose the right size of the needle according to your needs and the needle size specified in your medication instructions or by your medical practitioner.
3. Remove one needle from the packet and uncap it. Follow your medical practitioner’s instruction when it comes to selecting the type, i.e. single use vs reusable.
4. Place the pointed end of the needle on the syringe, pull back and make sure there is no airlock and if so tamp lightly with a sterile moisturizer.
5. On carefully chosen area of body, disinfect with alcohol and clean handkerchief for injection site.
6. Pull back plunger again before inserting the needle, hold syringe firmly and insert needle into skin at an angle of 15 to 20 degrees, preferably intramuscular.
7. Land injection slowly by depressing the plunger until all the medication is fully administered.
8. Pull the needle out all the way quickly after injecting the medication, and disinfect injection site again with alcohol to remove any trace of blood.
9. Place the used needle in safe sharps container and to avoid harm to other people.
10. Bandage the injection site for few minutes if needed.
A hypodermic needle also provides for rapid delivery of liquids. It is also used when the injected substance cannot be ingested orally, either because it would not be absorbed, as with insulin, or because it would harm the liver.
Hypodermic needles also serve important roles in research requiring sterile conditions. The hypodermic needle significantly reduces contamination during inoculation of a sterile substrate in two ways. First, its surface is extremely smooth, preventing airborne pathogens from becoming trapped between irregularities on the needle’s surface, which could subsequently be transferred into the media as contaminants. Second, the needle’s point is extremely sharp, significantly reducing the diameter of the hole remaining after puncturing the membrane, which consequently prevents microbes larger than the hole from contaminating the substrate.
