Get the Right Size Syringe – 3 CC Syringe

What is a syringe and why do you need it? A syringe is a pump with a plunger that is fitted tightly to a tube to allow liquids to be injected into patients. You can pull the plunger out and push it down inside of a cylinder-shaped tube known as the barrel. These features allow the syringe to absorb and eject liquid via an opening that is located at the top end of the tube that is typically outfitted with a needle for injections, though it can be used without a needle as well.

You can fit the opening of the syringe to a nozzle, tube or hypodermic needle so that the flow through the barrel is smooth and effective. People use syringes for administering injections, inserting IV drugs into the bloodstream, measuring liquids or applying lubricants, on craft projects or to add cooking flavors.

Syringes come in various sizes, including the 3 cc syringe used by diabetic individuals and hospital personnel. A prescription is not necessary to purchase these items because they are safe for use.

Design of the Tip

There are a wide variety of designs in which syringes are available. The designs are distinctly obvious around the section of the syringe that locks the needle to the body of the syringe. The most popular one of these is the Leur Lock. It is easy to twist off so a lay person can handle it quite efficiently. If you are going to connect the syringe to something else, you would use the slip tip to do so, especially if your 3 cc syringe doesn’t have a lock mechanism.

This is similar to the catheter tip but is a little longer and more tapered so you are able to push things into it, tightly sealing it. You can use it to rinse wounds in a veterinary environment to care for a pet. There is an eccentric type where the nozzle is at the side of the syringe, which can be used when you need to get the needle in close proximity and in parallel to the skin while injecting the medication or other liquid.

Size and Thickness

In some cases, the size of the syringe is determined by the entire unit, which includes the needle portion. This is important since the cylinder size is also used to determine the attached needle size. The needles, however, are characterized by their length and gauge, or the average thickness associated with the needle. When the gauge of the needle is higher, the syringe is typically smaller.

For diabetics, a 3 cc syringe holds approximately 30 units of insulin. In contrary, the 1 cc syringe holds approximately 100 units of insulin. You will find other syringes that do not come with a needle, such as oral syringes used to give liquids to babies or young children. The oral syringe tips are tapered where the needle would typically be inserted. Most of these syringes are of similar sizes and helpful in determining how much medication to dispense to the small child. Purchase your 3 cc syringe today at Bulk Syringes.

CC stands for cubic centimeter, a unit of measurement for volume. One cubic centimeter equals one milliliter; a 3 CC syringe, then, is a syringe that holds 3 ml of liquid.

Because of its versatility, this is one of the most popular size choices for many professionals.

  • Diabetics: a three cc syringe holds about 30 units of insulin, which makes it easy for those who need insulin injections to not only administer their dosage, but also forecast how many 3 ml syringes they will need.
  • Care for newborns and infants: Many newborns have problems nursing, and may need to be fed via tube, or need tubed supplementation. Whether the baby eats formula or breast milk, the food is typically put into a 3 ml syringe with a tube attached to help the baby get proper nutrition.
  • Medical hospital use: These are the most frequently used syringes for administering injections, holding medication for intravenous drug administration, or for measuring liquids.

Other use: There are many chefs who choose to use a 3 ml syringe to inject extra juices and flavors to their dishes.
