Needles, Injection, Hypodermic, Penlike Cartridge Syringe, Protective
Definition : Hypodermic injection needles designed to provide needlestick protection during subcutaneous injections from penlike cartridge syringes. These needles usually include some manually and/or automatically activated mechanism (e.g., a cover that automatically locks in place after injection) intended to shield the needle after use or, by some other means, to reduce the possibility of contact between the healthcare provider and the sharp needle. Hypodermic subcutaneous injection needles are intended mainly to be used with penlike syringes to inject insulin and/or other drugs (e.g., exenatide, Lantus, Apidra) from prefilled disposable cartridge syringes (usually from 1 to 3 mL capacity) and/or several types of injectors.
