safety syringe basics

Syringes are an indispensable basic device in modern medical procedures. With the development of clinical medical needs and advances in technology, syringes have also evolved from glass tube type (repetitive sterilization) to single-use sterile forms. The one-time use of sterile syringes has undergone a development process from a single function (only to the role of bolus injection) to the gradual improvement of functions with the technical and clinical requirements. Some leading-edge syringes have reached the safety of injections proposed by the World Health Organization. The extent to which the principles are safe for the recipient, safe for the user, and safe for the public environment.

1. Injection safety principle

Through long-term clinical investigation and discussion on syringes, especially single-use sterile syringes, the author believes that the WHO’s three principles of injection safety are the upper principles that should be followed for single-use sterile syringes, and only one-time one that satisfies this superior principle. The use of sterile syringes is not a perfect instrument; it is not only necessary to meet the safety principle of the device, but also to meet the different requirements and principles of social responsibility, medical institutions and manufacturers. To this end, such a progressive principle has been proposed as a development direction for single-use sterile syringes:

The principle of superiority (WHO injection safety principle): 1 is safe for users; 2 is safe for recipients; 3 is safe for public environment.

The lower principle (four principles of safe injection supplement) [1]: 1 Science and technology pioneer principle: use the simplest structure to complete the expected mission; achieve the lowest construction cost, that is, construct the simplest principle. 2 User first principle: In the process of using, it is necessary to meet the requirements of personnel operating costs, hospital management costs, and government supervision costs, which are also called the minimum management cost principle. 3 rational use of materials: the device not only to complete the intended purpose of treatment, but also to meet the requirements of the rational use of material properties, to save social resources and create social benefits. 4 Green and low-carbon social responsibility principle: rationally formulate the theory and treatment plan for waste disposal of waste equipment, and make the waste materials harmlessly treated and rationally recycled by fine structure design, providing reliable industrial raw materials for downstream industries. , take up the social responsibility that should be.
