20ABOUT BDChris Maguire, Marketing Manager at Becton Dickinson, introduces the company.

Beckton, Dickinson and

Company - is a

global medical

technology company

improving medical discovery,

diagnostics and care delivery.

Formed in 1897, the

company has built its knowledge

and experience to provide

innovative solutions that help

advance medical research and

genomics, enhance the diagnosis

of infectious disease and cancer,

improve medication management,

promote infection prevention, equip

surgical and interventional

procedures and support diabetes

management.

BD has been involved in diabetes

management for nearly a century.

For more than 90 years, we have

been innovating devices - pen

needles, insulin syringes and other

products - all diligently designed to

enable people who are living with

diabetes to benefit from

comfortable, effective diabetes care.

More recently, it's gone beyond

designing syringes and needles into

researching topics, like how is it

best to inject? As a result, we have a

new initiative called BD and Me. This

is an online educational resource

covering everything anyone would

need to know about injecting. The

simple, clear modules cover a range

of topics, from delivering insulin

to the right place to using the right

needle, and how different insulins

work - as well as how to store it

and how to care for injecting sites.

There's also a troubleshooting

section - why bruising? Why pain?

As well as a section on dealing

with the unexpected. Of course, BD

doesn't suggest that you should be

going it alone, giving tips too on

how to work with your healthcare

team to design your own tailored

lifelong learning plan. With bright

graphics, it's an easy-to-access

programme suitable for anyone

who's injecting medications.

on boxes of BD Micro-Fine Ultra Pen

Needles. www.bdandme.bd.com

ANY QUESTIONS?

An online educational resource - BD

and Me - has been set up for

anyone who wants to learn about

that diabetes basic, injecting. You

probably don't think that much

about your technique, but with this

series of simple, clear modules,

you can test your knowledge and

challenge yourself to complete the

course. You never know, you might

learn something!

There's a range of topics covered

(who knew there could be so

many?). So, from delivering insulin

to the right place, to using the right

Here are some frequently asked

questions to give an idea of what

concerns other people with

diabetes often raise:

Do I need to use a swab on my skin

before I inject?

What size needle should I use?

Skin should be clean and dry before

injecting, however there is no need

to use a disinfectant (eg, alcohol

swab) on the skin.

The 4mm pen needle

inserted perpendicularly (at 90

degrees) is long enough to

penetrate the skin and enter the

subcutaneous tissue, with little risk

of intramuscular (or intradermal)

injection. Therefore, the 4mm

pen needle should be considered

the safest for adults and children

regardless of age, gender and Body

Mass Index (BMI).

insulins work in your body are all

explored, as well as how to store it

and how to care for injecting sites.

Plus dealing with the unexpected.

As a means of education, you can

track your progress in

completing the modules. But nor

team to design your own tailored

lifelong learning plan.
