Needle Size- Does it Matter?

We’re all familiar with needles. If you happen to be a medical professional, even more so. It’s also a well-known fact that most of the people (other than the one who administers the injection) are not great fans of the needle that goes in your body.

So, what’s the solution for this never-ending fear? Maybe a little knowledge on injections can help. Medical practitioners prescribe you with an injection, most of the time to get into your body an antidote for your physical inconvenience. Injections through needles, as a matter of fact, can get you almost an instant relief, or the desired effect to treat you.

Now that you understand the benefits of injection, let’s dive into the issue of the size of the needle. Does the size matter? Well, it does.

You may have heard that injections are to be delivered subcutaneously (under the skin). An ideal needle should be just long enough to penetrate the skin, but not too long to touch the muscle tissues. This is one reason for medical practitioners to recommend the daily takers of injection, like patients who need insulin injections, pen needles. A typical pen needle is a 4mm short and thin device which reduces the risk of getting injected on the muscle tissues.
