Pollinex-R Question

  1. I posted this question in the Outpatient Nurses forum but didn't get any responses because most of the nurses there are American and I don't think it's available there under that name. I could really use some advice on this issue, which BTW is driving me nuts.

    Thanks in advance

    Guess no one has any experience with it.

    That's okay, I think I've figured it out myself. In case you're curious, the Pollinex prefilled syringes come with 23g needles and never block. Since my clinic doesn't have any 23g needles, I found that if I use the 22g 1" needle and inject it just deep enough for it to go SC, it doesn't block. The only drawback is that it occasionally freaks the patient out. :chuckle
