Safety and Specialty Syringes with permanently attached
needle are designed to protect patients and healthcare
professionals and minimize medication waste.
According to WHO guidelines for people who inject drugs it is suggested that
needle exchange programs provide low dead space syringes for distribution to people
who inject drugs due to evidence that the provision of low dead space syringes
leads to a reduction in the transmission of HIV, and hepatitis B and C.
• Reduced drug waste.
• Increase of 2-19% additional vaccine doses per vial if current 10-dose flu vaccine vials are used.
Which in large flu vaccine campaigns suggests an instant increase of thousands to millions of additional persons who are vaccinated.
• If 50% of people who inject drugs switch to low dead space syringes
an estimated reduction of 33% of new HIV, and Hepatitis B and C infections will occur.
• Reduce incidence of overdose in infants and premature babies.
• Improve imaging of radiographic techniques
