Can I Use The Wing Needle Many Times?
?? Wings needle can be used many times or once and then throw it straight away ???
Hello Fatmah, Thank you for the question.
A wing needle is a syringe that has wings on both sides that are used to deliver medicine through veins (intravenously). Wing needles are disposable syringes (for one patient) and are not recommended for repeated use. Repeated use of syringes in different patients can cause the risk of transmission of infection from one patient to another. Some examples of infectious diseases that can be transmitted through needles are HIV, hepatitis C, syphilis. This also applies to other syringes or other invasive medical devices. If you are about to receive a drug injection, you can ask to make sure the syringe is new or not to the medical person who is treating you.
Hopefully this information is useful.
