Syringes, Plunger, Protective, Fixed Needle
Definition : Plunger syringes supplied with a needle permanently attached to their tip (e.g., cemented into glass syringes, glued in plastic syringes) that are designed to provide needlestick protection (safety). These syringes include some mechanism (manually positioned or activated) intended either to shield, blunt, or recess the needle after use or, by some other means, lessen the possibility of contact of the healthcare provider with the sharp needle. The needles are frequently fixed at a point that corresponds to the zero graduation mark.
