Use and Dosage
To use a BD Disposable Needle, ensure you have a BD Disposable Needle, a compatible syringe, and any medication or solution you will be injecting. Make sure all supplies are clean and in good condition. If necessary, draw up the medication into the syringe according to the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or the medication package insert. Carefully remove the protective cap from the needle. Avoid touching the needle tip to prevent contamination.

Hold the syringe with the needle pointing upward and gently tap the side to allow any air bubbles to rise to the top. Slowly push the plunger to expel the air until a small drop of medication appears at the needle tip. Clean the injection site with an alcohol swab and allow it to dry. Follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare professional for the appropriate injection site. Hold the syringe like a pencil or dart and insert the needle into the injection site at the proper angle and depth based on the type of injection. Slowly and steadily push the plunger to deliver the medication.
After injecting the medication, remove the needle from the injection site at the same angle it was inserted. Apply gentle pressure to the site with a clean cotton ball or swab if necessary.
