This length is supported by the recommendations published in the May Clinic Proceedings that advocate using shortest needle first line for all categories. This syringe is preferred by most patients over the their current length. The BD Vieo provides approximately 8x-lower risk of intramuscular injection compared to a 12.7mm needle.
