The New U-500 Syringe Will Eliminate the Need for Dose Conversions

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 the actual number of insulin units can be measured with the new U-500 syringe...so there's no need for dose conversions.
