U-100 U-40 REDORANGE Only U-40 Syringes (with markings up to 40 ) should be used with a U - 40 insulin vial. Only U-100 syringe ( with marking up to 100 ) should be used with a U - 100 insulin vial.
40 IU (U40) - Each ml of U- 40 insulin consists of 40 IU* of insulin 100 IU (U100) - Each ml of U-100 insulin consists of 100 IU* of insulin VIALS: U-40 and U- 100 * IU=International Unit
Injecting Single Type of Insulin 1. Wash your hands.Gently mix the insulin by rolling the vial between the palms of your hands or by inverting the bottle 4-5 times. Don’t shake vigorously. 1 2. If using a new vial, inspect the insulin, then remove the flat, colored cap from the bottle; do not remove the rubber stopper or the metal band under the cap.
3. Clean the rubber stopper of the bottle with an alcohol swab. 1. 4. Remove the needle cover and pull back the plunger until the tip is at the line for the prescribed number of units. This will pull air into the syringe.
5. Insert the needle through the rubber stopper of the bottle, making sure that the tip of the needle is not in the insulin. Then depress the plunger to put air into the bottle. 6. Turn the bottle and syringe upside down, and ensure that the tip of the needle is in the insulin. Hold both the vial and the syringe in one hand, and use the other hand to pull back on the plunger of the needle. This will draw insulin into the syringe. Stop pulling when the plunger reaches the line for your prescribed dose.
7. Inspect the insulin in the syringe for bubbles. If bubbles are present, push the insulin back into the vial and start again with the previous step. Repeat this process until there are no bubbles in the syringe. 8. Pull the needle out of the rubber stopper. If you need to lay the syringe down before delivering your injection, put the cover back on the needle to protect the tip from becoming contaminated.
How to inject Choose an injection site.“ Pinch ” up a large area of skin. Insert the needle into the skin at a 90 angle. Push the plunger all the way down. Release the pinched skin and count to five slowly. Pull the needle straight out. Do not rub the injection site. Thin people may find it easier to inject at an angle of 45 degrees
