Our medical syringe products include different types of syringes, such as insulin syringes, tuberculin or TB syringes, Botox syringes, irrigation syringes, enteral feeding syringes, and syringes for taking oral medications. We also offer catheter tip syringes, Luer lock-tip syringes and slip-tip syringes, catheter tip syringes, and eccentric tip syringes.
I have been selling medical syringe products and needles on my website for the last 18 years or so. Most customers of mine order online and never call me for advice as to what size syringe or what gauge needle they would need—for example, if they wanted to take an insulin or a testosterone injection. But I have always thought that I should at least know the basics. Of course, I understand that it’s not my domain, but a health professional's. However, if I knew a little more, I would be able to guide better, just in case someone asks. Why? Because I love my customers and I want them to shop right the first time and spend the time saved on relaxing, eating healthily, perhaps watching a movie with their loved one, or exercising. I am sure most will agree that calling to return orders and then shipping products back is no fun for anyone.
Just the other day, a customer of mine called and said that he had placed an order incorrectly. He wanted to order a 21-gauge, 1.5-inch needle but instead ordered the 23-gauge needle. I reassured him that I could still catch the order before it shipped and that I would send him the needles he actually needed. That got me thinking again—wouldn’t it be nice to have a comprehensive resource on my website, MedOnTheGo.com, that can guide or better inform my customers when they shop for needles, syringes, or syringe-needle combinations so that they order the right product every time.
So here it goes. Let us begin with medical syringe products first. How do we select the correct syringe? Let us get to understand syringes a little bit more first.
