The 20cc "Stubby" Syringe is especially designed for women and workers with small hands. The syringe has a shorter and broader barrel and a shorter plunger which adds comfort and reduces fatigue. The nylon barrel is transparent virtually unbreakable sterilizable and features permanent laser-etched gradation markings. The heavy chrome-plated brass plunger rod is attached to a stainless steel nut embedded in the yellow plastic palm-rest. The luer lock needle holder tip is securely screwed onto a stainless steel plate at the barrel tip. A feeding tube for inserting medications into the throat is sold separately. Needles not included.
