Needles, Injection, Hypodermic, Protective
Definition : Hypodermic needles designed to provide needlestick protection. These needles include some manually and/or automatically activated mechanism intended to shield, blunt, or recess the needle during or after use or, by some other means, to reduce the possibility of contact between the healthcare provider and the sharp needle. Protective hypodermic needles may be used with hypodermic syringes designed for specific injection sites (e.g., dental).
