    0 Yes, it's drilled into our heads in nursing school, and it's even printed right on the syringe -for U-100 unsulin only- but does anyone ever use insulin syringes for other SQ meds?
    Let me explain my rationale:
    Pt. needs 1mL of heparin SQ. Smallest needle available is 25g 5/8".
    Giving it is a difficult task considering the small sub Q layer some of these tiny ladies have. Also quite a painful jab. 100 units of insulin=1ml, correct? So just draw up to 100 units, and spare the pt. quite a bit of trauma by using a smaller needle. Similarly if the dose is 0.5ml, use the line for 50 units.
    Please don't flame me for not going "by the book". I would however appreciate any solid reasons why this is or is not a good practice. Is there something I'm missing here?

    Actually, for Sub-q heparin I use a TB syringe. We don't have 100unit insulin syringes, only 50units.
    I also use a TB syringe when I'm drawing up Phenergan or Benedryl, etc, any med where I don't need the entire mL of fluid. So Benedryl is 50mg/mL and the order is usually 25. It's easier to measure with the TB syringe, and then I squirt the syringe into my prefilled NS flush.
