I was curious how the Abboject syringes for the code meds (epi, atropine, etc) are put together? Does the medication vial screw in to the syringe vial? Does it stick out the end of the syringe? How does one push the med, is there a plunger that is somewhere in the box?
I tried Googling and Youtubeing videos, but surprisingly there aren't any. I figure this would be a pretty important thing to know how to do before I push meds in my first code.

Grasp the two containers one in each hand. You flip off the yellow caps with your thumbs. Remove the yellow needless cap. You screw/twist in the glass syringe (with the threaded blue piece) on to the plastic one securely. an assembled picture is here....http://www.buyemp.com/syringe-guide.html
Hold syringe tip up and remove the air pocket. You can remove the green needless tip for needle administration. inject as you would any other plunger syringe
