Questions and AnswersWhat Is What?



Syringes come in various sizes. Some are small, others are a bit bigger. These syringes are used to give you medicine. But these ones don’t have a needle – can you see? They fit exactly into the opening in the little plastic tube that we’ve placed in your blood vessel. This means we can give you medicine directly into your bloodstream without having to stick any more needles into you. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
