SPIRIT HEALTH

Ateria SafeControl. Described as an

active safety pen needle for

healthcare professionals who use

injection pens to administer

medication, or people who selfinject,

it is designed to protect users

from needlestick injuries while

enabling them to keep control of the

overall process. Features and

benefits include a visible needle, an

innovative manual push tab for

one-handed activation of the safety

mechanism, and dual visible and

audible safety indicators for

confirmation the safety mechan

ism is activated. Compatible with all

major injection pens and available

on prescription, a safety guard also

covers the needle to prevent

needlestick injuries after injection.

Insupen Original pen needles are

precision engineered to reduce

friction points, and therefore reduce

pain. They come in four lengths and

four different gauges to suit

Pen needle sizes can be a little confusing.

The good news is that they are all smaller than

they used to be in the old days, so pain is not as

big a deal as it used to be when needles were

wider and longer than the ones now available.

Needle length is easy to comprehend, but

gauges take a bit of explaining. One of the

measurements used in needle descriptions

relate to the length of the needle, now in

millimetres, like 6mm, not the half-inch used in

days gone by. Where it says, for example, 31G,

then the G (or g) is a reference to the gauge of

the needle - the thickness or capacity.

THE GIG WITH GAUGES The higher the gauge, the less pressure needed

to inject as more volume can come through,

which improves the comfort of the injection. So,

using a 32G 4mm will be more comfortable

compared to a 31G 4mm needle.

Gauge and needle length will contribute to

perceptions of pain when injecting.

Also, insulin pen needles now come with 'thin

wall' and 'extra thin wall'. This can also

contribute to comfort when injecting, thinner

walls and higher gauges lead to lower pressure

being needed.

individual needs. All have a wide

internal diameter for efficient insulin

flow and confirm to ISO 11608. PIP

codes are available for prescriptions.
