Blunt Needle Card

£0.33

This simple, graphic leaflet shows in print what can’t be seen by the eye: just how damaging to soft tissue a needle blunted by re-use can be.
 
Multiple re-use of needles is a major cause of vein damage, and vein damage and collapse is one reason why people progress to more dangerous injecting sites.

As needle blunting is affected by a number of things, the leaflet doesn’t give a number of times that it can be used before it looks like that: it could be after a single attempt to find a vein (if the skin was tough, or the needle vulnerable to metal fatigue) or (as was the case when we did the photography) not until 8 or 10 attempts had been made.

However, the feeling of a blunt needle is well known – hence the choice of the more powerful line ‘when a needle feels blunt, this is what it looks like’.
