Syringes, Plunger, Insulin, Protective, Luer Lock
Definition : Insulin syringes, usually with a preattached needle to their Luer-lock tip, that are designed to provide needlestick protection (safety). These syringes include some mechanism (manually positioned or activated) intended either to shield, blunt, or recess the needle after use or, by some other means, to lessen the possibility of contact of the healthcare provider with the sharp needle. Luer-lock tapers include an internally threaded skirt or other structure around the taper, adding additional strength to the connection with a female Luer taper.
