The BD Luer-Lok 1mL syringe is a sterile and disposable syringe commonly used in various clinical applications. It is designed with a clear barrel and bold scale markings for easy measurement and accurate dosing. The syringe features a tapered plunger rod for smooth aspiration and a positive plunger rod stop to prevent accidental spillage or leakage.
The BD Luer-Lok thread provides a secure connection between the syringe and other Luer-Lok compatible devices, ensuring that the needle remains securely attached during use. This feature is particularly important in critical clinical applications where avoiding potential needle disengagement, medication leakage, or spray is crucial. It does not come with a needle, so you would need to purchase a separate needle that is compatible with the Luer-Lok syringe.
Use and Dosage
To use Syringes BD Disposable Luer Lok 1mL, ensure that the syringe and packaging are intact and not damaged. Check the expiration date to ensure they are within the valid period.
Before handling the syringe, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to maintain cleanliness and reduce the risk of contamination. Choose a compatible needle that fits securely onto the Luer Lok connection of the syringe. Take care to ensure a proper connection to prevent leakage or needle disengagement during use.
If you are using the syringe to draw medication from a vial or ampule, follow the standard aseptic technique. Remove the protective cover from the needle and insert it into the vial or ampule. Pull back on the plunger to draw the desired amount of medication into the syringe. To remove air bubbles from the syringe, gently tap the barrel to make the bubbles rise towards the needle end. Slowly push the plunger up to expel the air. Ensure the correct amount of medication remains in the syringe. Carefully position the needle at the desired injection site on the patient's body. Slowly and steadily push the plunger to inject the medication. Follow proper injection techniques and guidelines provided by healthcare professionals.
