Prescribe the New U-500 Syringes to Avoid Dangerous Dosing Errors
The new U-500 insulin syringe will help improve patient safety.
It's been a long time coming. Patients using U-500 insulin vials have had to convert doses to U-100 syringe markings OR to volume with tuberculin syringes...which can lead to dangerous dosing errors.
Now patients can simply draw up the actual number of units with the new U-500 syringe...so there's no need for dose conversions.
