Needle-Free Injection Technology To Protect Healthcare Workers And Doctors
Other than fear, there are many different causes of why the needles must be replaced with needle-free technology:
As per OSHA, (Occupational Safety and Health Administration, USA) there are between 600,000 to 800,000 needle stick injuries annually in the U.S. alone. These injuries make the healthcare workers exposed to up to 20 different blood-based pathogens. Every needlestick injury causes expenses of about $3,000 for lab fees, labour, post-exposure follow-ups, etc.
The major blood-borne pathogens causing worry are the HIV Virus, hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV). In some cases, other infections may be passed on; for example, Treponema pallidum and human T-cell lymphoma virus (HTLV-1) are endemic in some human inhabitants in remote Australia. Finding out the probability of transmission after a needle-stick injury is difficult as there are many factors which lead to the risk. The risk of acquiring infection is highest for HBV and least for HIV, with HCV being of intermediate risk.
Needlestick injuries (NSIs) are among the most common occurrences reported by healthcare workers, including doctors, nurses and non-clinical staff. This is chiefly caused by worry because hospital workers who are pricked with a needle may be at risk of contracting viruses that are carried in the bloodstream. Over the past two decades, efforts have been made to reduce the rate of NSIs. In spite of this, the numbers of NSIs remains dangerously high.
To remove all these risks to these medical professionals, we need to adopt an effective modern technology where no needles are used for administration for medication and other purposes.
