This needle is sometimes used by people who inject steroids in small muscles; it is important to pay attention not to inject in the fatty tissue with this needle which is relatively short for intramuscular injection
To prevent the needle to break:
- Do not let go of the syringe once the needle has pierced the skin
- Change the needle if you cannot find a vein
- Do not move during the injection
Colours are an indication of the external diameter of the needle. The length refers to the visible part of the needle or to the total length of the needle, including the part inside the plastic hub. The needle can thus be slightly shorter than indicated.
