What exactly is a syringe?


Seeing a needle or syringe, or having to get an injection with a needle is amongst peoples’ biggest fears. What people don’t put much thought into is a syringe may be a term used to describe both a syringe barrel and a needle, but more specifically: a syringe barrel holds liquid or medication and a needle tip can be attached to the tip of a syringe barrel (or not).


Defining a syringe:

A syringe is a tool commonly used in medicine designed to draw up and hold specifically measured fluid. It can also be used to dispense or administer injections into a body, transfer of liquids during scientific testing, or for oral medications /topical uses. Syringes can be used by a variety of medical practitioners, scientists, or people with specific medical needs. Syringes can also be used for a variety of unrelated, non-medical applications.


The parts of a syringe:

The four parts of a syringe include the barrel, the plunger, the needle, and the cap.

-The barrel is the part of the syringe able to hold medication or any liquid. To simplify, the barrel is a tube sealed at one end by the addition of a needle tip or cap, and sealed at the other end with the plunger being inserted into the tube. The barrel and plunger work together by creating a vacuum within the barrel as the plunger is pulled back. This allows for easy transfer of a liquid into and from the syringe.
-The plunger has two resulting actions. It can either draw up liquid or push it out. The plunger works by creating a vacuum within the barrel of the syringe when it is pulled back, and this is how liquid can be drawn into the syringe. There is a tight seal along the inner circumference of the syringe, which creates a suction force easily able to suck up fluids or push them out of the syringe.
-The needle attaches to the tip of the syringe. Some syringe uses do not require a needle, but when a needle is needed it can be a luer lock or a luer slip connection. These two needle tip connections connect in different ways. A luer lock connection is a spin-on connection providing a secure connection that will not come apart while in use. The small grooves along the needle tip hub threads into the syringe barrel luer lock very similar to a bottle spins on. A luer slip connection looks like a small cone at the top of the syringe barrel. This connection is less secure and simply allows the user to press the needle tip onto the luer slip syringe. The issue with a luer slip is possible detachment while in use if the pressure exerted exceeds what is able to be tolerated by both the syringe and the needle tip. Another common use for the luer slip syringe is oral veterinarian medication. A luer slip needle is a safe and effective way to administer oral medications for veterinarian use.

The hub of the needle refers to the needle tip portion connecting to the syringe barrel. This connection will either be a push on or a luer lock connecting needle. All needle tips are universal in design, meaning all needle tips are identical in shape and size. This fact lets us know that any needle tip purchased with fit any syringe. Lets review the design of the needle tip: The shaft of a needle is of course hollow and allows the fluid stored in the syringe barrel to be pushed through the needle tip and administered as needed. The same force exerted on the plunger which pushed the liquid stored in the barrel to be expelled also works similarly when a needle tip is attached. When the needle tip is attached, the liquid passes through the barrel, through the needle, and is expelled. What considerations does this knowledge let us consider? A syringe is a useful, plastic disposable item intended to be used carefully and with a reasonable amount of force. Should the user push too hard, too quickly on the plunger, it could create a force too high for the syringe, and the result could be a simple luer slip needle tip detaching. Similarly, if the contents of a syringe are too thick, and the needle tip is too fine, this would also create a similar scenario where the contents pass very slowly through the needle tip or detach a luer slip needle attachment. For this example, a simple solution would be to firstly adjust the needle size to something slightly bigger to make the process easier on the syringe.

Lastly, the tip of a needle is an important consideration. Blunt tip needles are used for many non-medical applications, but for medical use, a sharp bevelled needle tip is the choice. Medical needles come in a variety of sizes ranging from very large to very small- similar to the sizes one would see on any insulin syringe. A bevel tip is a sharp angled needle tip designed for minimum discomfort and efficient penetration. Beveled tips are commonly used in medical applications for both humans and animals. All syringes used for injection will be a sharp bevelled tip needle and it will be sterile and individually wrapped.
-The final syringe piece is its protective cap. Even a cap has a few options. A syringe cap could be a standard cap or it could be a safety syringe needle cap which is designed to provide extra safety against needle sticks during use. No matter the type of needle cap, the needle will be under the protection of a cap.

History of the syringe:

The term syringe is originally derived from the Greek work “syrinx” which translates to the tube. It was in the 1st century AD that syringes first came to be used in Roman times. According to a documented journal called De Medicina, those syringes were used for medical purposes, to administer medicine through an injection. Later, in the 9th century, an African Egyptian surgeon invented a glass syringe using suction and hollow tube. In 1650 Blaise Pascal invented a syringe for the application of fluid mechanics. This gave birth to one of the most famous Physics Laws called The Pascal Law. Through the use of a syringe, Pascal established that a pressure is exerted equally in all directions in a liquid that is confined, and pressure differences remain the same throughout. More inventions followed this discovery by Pascal. In 1844, Francis Rynd, a famous Irish scientist, created a hollow needle which he used to make the first ever recorded skin injection. 1853 saw two scientists, Alexander Wood and Charles Pravaz develop a more advanced syringe. Their invention had a finer bevel that would penetrate the skin easily compared to earlier inventions. Apparently, Alexander’s wife used the syringe to inject herself with morphine which led to her death. She became the first person to be recorded to die of a drug overdose. In 1899 Letitia Mumford Geer from New York, after being granted a permit, designed a syringe that was able to be operated with only one hand. Fast forward to the year 1946, and two brothers commonly known as the Chance Brothers invented the first widely used glass syringe. Their invention was one of a kind, and it marked a revolutionary point of success in the field of medicine. The syringe had an interchangeable barrel and plunger. This was a key milestone as it allowed sterilization of different components of the syringe without having to necessarily match them up. Charles Rothauser, an Australian scientist, invented the first ever plastic, disposable syringe. Originally created in 1949 at his factory in Adelaide, this syringe was made of a polythene plastic not well suited for heated sterilization. These syringes turned out to be very expensive to manufacture, mostly because the polythene is known to soften when exposed to heat. This required the syringes to be chemically sterilized before exportation. Within two years, he improved his formula to make syringes from polypropylene plastic which was able to be sterilized by heat. This was a significant improvement. In 1956 a New Zealand Pharmacist, Colin Murdoch was granted rights for a plastic, disposable syringe. In 1961 Becton Dickinson invented the plastipak which was a plastic disposable syringe. In 1974 Phil Brooks received US legal rights for a disposable syringe. Throughout the years, syringes have undergone modifications and improvements which in turn has brought changes and improvements in medical delivery services.

Syringe FACTS:

Syringe summary:

The syringes we see the most in use today are disposable and one use only, intended to be safely discarded after use. A disposable syringe will always be individually wrapped and sterile for use. The invention of the disposable syringe has decreased the cost per syringe greatly from the past glass syringes. This has decreased the cost of syringes and has led to improvements in healthcare delivery and treatments of both humans and animals. Syringes have many uses, with the wide variety ranging from industrial, laboratory use and scientific work, hospital and on-site medical care, and also by trained average individuals comfortable mananging their own medical needs in the comfort and privacy of their home. Syringes come in many sizes. There are very small syringes: Insulin Syringes and similarly very small needle tip sizes. Syringes can be very small, holding very little liquid or very large and able to hold a substantial amount of liquid. The tip of the syringe is a feature the user is able to choose depending on its future use and the needle tip can also be flat and blunt, or pointed and bevelled. A needle tip does not always come as part of a syringe, so the user needs to look carefully to make sure the right product is being selected. Needle tips which are sold separately will also be individually wrapped and sterile just as the syringes are. A syringe can come with no needle, a needle attached, a separate needle.

There are many choices because there are many uses. When requiring a needle for injection for a human or animal, the syringe tip would ideally be a sharp bevelled tip of a sufficient gauge to allow for the contents to easily pass from syringe and through the needle. The very smallest syringes would be the Insulin Syringes. An Insulin Syringe has a fixed needle tip which is a needle glued on permanently to a needle hub or base of a needle. The term Insulin Syringe describes the full syringe, plunger, fixed needle, and protective cap. It is useful to know a conventional syringe also comes in a 1mL or 1cc size and that separate needle tips exactly matching the size of any Insulin Syringe are able to be created by purchasing the two pieces: 1mL syringe and needle tip separately. In many cases, Insulin syringes are ideal for administering insulin but can also be used for medicine and fluids that have to be measured in very specific, small increments.

The smaller the syringe, in reference to the volume of the liquid a syringe can hold, the more specific a fluid measurement will be. For example: A person may purchase either a .5cc or a 1cc Insulin Syringe but the .5cc syringe will measure the liquid contents twice as specifically and accurately. This leads to more correct measuring and less waste.

How is a cc and mL different? These terms can be used interchangeably. They mean the same thing and no complex calculations are required. The measurements of liquid by volume can be specifically measured by reading along the side barrel of any syringe. As the fluid enters the syringe, one can measure the volume by reading the measurementes printed along the barrel. As the numbers get larger, there is more liquid or medicine in the syringe. As the number gets larger, the volume of liquid also gets larger, and the accuracy and ability to measure very specifically declines. Respectively, when referring to the needle tip sizing: A very low number such as 18 gauge refers to a very big, very thick needle tip which will draw up fluid quickly and easily. The term gauge is meant to describe the size of this needle tip, small or large, so the correct size may be selected for the task at hand. A 25 gauge is a very small needle which is commonly attached to a 1mL, 3mL, 5mL, or larger syringe, and because it is a small, thin syringe needle tip, thick fluids may be difficult to draw up and pass through the small needle. Insulin Syringes have needle tips fixed to each barrel in sizes: 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31gauge. Once again, as the numbers get larger, the size of the needle gets smaller or finer. Most insulin syringes have a ½ inch needle tip length except for the 30 & 31 gauge. The 30 gauge has the option of both a ½ inch or a 5/16 inch needle length, but the smallest insulin syringe which is the 31 gauge only offers the short 5/16 inch needle length.
