Healthcare providers and those who administer insulin to others will be able to operate this device with ease and confidence and may experience an overall product savings for their healthcare facility.
Yes, clinicians and healthcare providers appreciate the traditional technology, and training for this device is very straightforward.
After injection, grasp the safety sheath and extend forward until an audible click is heard. After the safety sheath is fully extended, twist in either direction until a click is heard securing final locked position.
No, once the safety shield has been extended over the needle tip and twisted into the locked position, the device is permanently locked out. The Assure ID is a single-use syringe that should never be reused.
Designed to minimize the loss of medication after an injection, low dead space indicates that the needle is directly attached to the syringe barrel, rather than an interchangeable needle which has dead space in the connection hub. Given the large cost of insulin medications, this unused medication cost typically far exceeds the purchase price of the syringe itself. (source: http://www.patents.com/us-5782803.html)
Yes, The Assure ID has a fixed needle that eliminates a hub which fills with medication but is not dispersed when the syringe is depressed, potentially bringing additional cost savings to the healthcare facility.
Yes, the bold markings are easily visible through the clear safety sheath to ensure proper dosage. Reminder: Assure ID is intended for use with U-100 calibrated insulin.
No, the needle is fixed to the syringe barrel. There is no need to swap out needles and assemble the syringe in order to use.
Generally speaking, size the syringe to the maximum injection dosage. For example, if taking 20 units per shot, use either a 0.5cc/50-unit syringe. Since the markings are wider apart on a smaller syringe, it is generally easier to read a 35-unit dosage on a 0.5cc/50-unit syringe than a 1cc/100-unit syringe. There is nothing wrong with doing a 15-unit dosage on a 1cc/100-unit syringe, but remember, being precise with dosage leads to better diabetes management.
The cc's (cubic centimeter) are a measure of the VOLUME of the syringe, not the NUMBER of units of insulin. The cc's and units measure two different things. In the U.S., most insulin is formulated at 100 units per milliliter or 100 units per cc (since a cc equals a milliliter). However, insulin syringes come in different sizes to match insulin strength and dosage. For instance, if a syringe holds 1 cc (or 1 milliliter), then it can hold 100 units of insulin.
Both the 0.5cc and 1cc insulin syringe precisely measure insulin ensuring a proper dose.
Please reference the Sharps Safety Disposal Guidelines by State for information about how sharps should be disposed of in your particular state.
No, Assure ID is only for use with U-100 insulin.
In the United States, insulin is labeled "U-100," which means there are 100 units of insulin per milliliter of fluid in the vial. Some insulin is also available in U-500 strength. This form of insulin is only for people with marked insulin resistance who take doses of more than 200 units per day. People traveling outside the United States must bring enough U-100 insulin and syringes to last the entire trip, because insulin in some other countries is sometimes sold in U-40 strength. If emergency insulin is needed and the only choice available is U-40 insulin, syringes marked for U-40 should be used as well. Syringes for U-40 insulin have a red cover and red scale, rather than the orange needle cover and black scale of U-100 syringes.
Insulin can't be taken as a pill or capsule because the digestive juices in the stomach ruin its effectiveness. Most people inject insulin with a syringe or insulin pen, although other methods are available.
