According to recent statistics, every year a growing number of people affected by disposable syringes. As it turned out, disposable syringes is very unsafe, and in some countries, such as the U.S. has already legislated may not be used in hospitals older types of disposable syringes. When using a standard disposable syringe means that it will be used once, and immediately after filling drug. After using a disposable syringe is subject to mandatory recycling. Nevertheless, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) each year due to reuse of disposable syringes 8-16 million people are infected and ill with hepatitis B; 2,3-4,7 million – with hepatitis C; 80-160 thousand people – are infected with hiv. As we see, disposable syringes without sterilization is used, and twice and three times, leading to infection of more number of people. In Russia and Ukraine, about eighty percent of officially registered cases of infection associated with injecting drugs, that is, through non-sterile contaminated syringe needle, which was supposed to be disposable.
In addition, used disposable syringes often carelessly stored, disposed of unsafe, and any random person can, through negligence, prick infected needle. At the present stage of development of medicine and health, the unique solution of the issue of security of injections can only be the application of new types of disposable syringes, the design is such that can not use them more than once. This is the third generation auto-disable syringes (issued their name – safety syringes). Until recently, this type of medical equipment was only a draft, but now such disposable syringes are now on mass production. The main difference between disposable auto-disable syringes of standard types is that the auto-disable syringes fitted with a special device inside the cylinder, which, after drug administration holds the piston with a needle holder, and with the reverse stroke headshell with possibly infected needle retracts into the cylinder. Simple and brilliant. Needle, drawn into cylinder, can no longer use or accidentally injure another person, which excludes the possibility of infection. Parts of a used syringe to be destroyed, which requires the use of special teams containers for disposal. World Health Organization strongly recommends that completely switch to the use of precisely such disposable syringes, particularly for countries with high consumption drugs.
