Unclear info: Sharing needles is a know risk factor for HIV, if one of the users has HIV. If the nurse used a new needle for the injection, there is no risk. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

I stepped on syringe needle lying outside dog hospital, is there a risk of rabies? Though no blood came out of my feet
No risk of rabies: Rabies vaccine given to dogs is a killed virus vaccine, so there is no risk. I believe you should not assume it is a syringe used on dogs, but perhaps one used by humans to inject drugs. In that case you should seek attention from urgent care for testing and prevention "as if" it were a needle stick from a contaminated syringe used by humans.

I was prescribed intramuscular vitamins and given insulin syringes and told to inject into the glutes. I don't think the needle reaches the muscle. Will it still work if it goes into fat?
Yes,but ask 4 longer: Yes, it should still work, but it would be better to inject into muscle. I usually use one and a half inch long (but thin like 27 guage) needles to inject into muscle. You can also inject into the back of your upper arm where there is less fat between the muscle and skin so that your current needles will reach muscle. Ask your doc for longer needles! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Reuse of anti rabies vaccine syringe causes HIV? is vaccine small needle syringe is auto disable or reusable? if HIV how many days after HIV testing
Disposable...: I can only speak for the vaccines in the USA; however, here all vaccines are given with disposable needles that are not reused. I'd imagine that in your country, that is also the case - or at least the needles are sterilized before being used again so that risk of transmission of blood borne illnesses is negligible. ...Read more
Will i get pregnant if i just put sperm inside my vagina on my fertile days? I put it in a needle less syringe and injected inside, but w/ saliva
Pulling back on the needle to check for air bubbles a white discharge fills the syringe. Could this be a sterial abscess? No symptoms , just sore leg.
More info: What are you using a needle on your leg (or whatever you're pulling back on) for? Although I definitely need more information to give you the best advice, I would advise that any time you pull back on a needle from somewhere on/in your body and you get a white return, I can't help but think it's a sign of infection. You may want to give your doctor a call. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Look at the insert: Most Insulin syringe manufacturers discourage the practice of keeping Insulin for a prolonged period of time in the syringes specially with long acting analogs like lantus (insulin glargine). I do tell my patients that it is ok for short acting insulins to be preloaded in a syringe if you are going out to eat but no longer than 2-3 hrs. ...Read more
Amount?: Remember that the veins are carrying oxygen-poor blood back to the lungs. Small amounts of air are quickly incorporated into the de-oxygenated hemoglobin which is "oxygen hungry". Air in the veins is generally well tolerated. It is not tolerated at all when injected into an artery. Even a tiny amount results in "air embolism" which paradoxically deprives served tissues of oxygen carried by blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Syringe is best: A sterile syringe is the best and will collect the blood. Otherwise it is a matter of some type of cutting the skin to make the blood drip into a container. This is enhanced by heating the body part that you are cutting . Remember that the blood will clot and separate into clot and serum which might affect the art. You can buy blood at a butcher shop to avoid hurting yourself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
