BD Veo insulin syringes with BD Ultra-Fine 6mm x 31G needle

Give your patient less to fear with less needle, less pain, and less chance of intramuscular injection.*1,2

BD Veoinsulin syringes feature the shortest BD Ultra-Fine needle, 53% shorter than the 12.7-mm needle. This length is supported by recent recommendations published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings that advocate using the shortest needle first-line for all patient categories.1† Preferred by most patients over their current needle length, BD Veo insulin syringes provide approximately 8x-lower risk of intramuscular injection compared to a 12.7-mm needle.2,3‡

Four barrel sizes

BD Veo insulin syringes come in four different barrel sizes and scale capacities to optimize dose.

Reduced risk of hypoglycemia

Longer needle lengths may lead to frequent IM vs subcutaneous tissue injections, which may cause unexplained hypoglycemia.1,2
