Safer Use - Tips for users
If you "go for it" it and also want to have fun for a while, then you should keep the following guidelines in mind:
- Set it up nicely! Together, often makes it more fun.
- Wash your hands and disinfect previously punctured areas with swabs for cleanliness.
- Use your own cutlery and use a new needle for each injection.
- From us you can get per pump two interchangeable needles (with the first you raise, with the second you press).
- We provide sterile water. If you take tap water, then let the tap run for at least 1 minute. Do not use standing water!
- Use thicker needles. They are safer in the vein and you will not slip out as easily as you take off the binder around your arm or leg.
- The red insulin syringes are bad! They are not sharp enough and tear on the veins skin, which often heals poorly.
- Take as little as possible ascorbic!
- Always point the needle puncture towards the heart, otherwise you destroy the venous valves and the veins break.
- Put ease on your veins by changing the injection site. Do not poke around in search of the vein with the needle in the injection site.
- Press the injection site, so there is no bruising after the injection.
- Cultivate your veins with ointment (we provide it free of charge).
- If you are unsure or uncomfortable about what you're doing, come and visit us.
Remember that and good luck!
