Here's why it matters

Syringes can vary in size depending on their intended use. Students learning about syringes often seek answers to the following questions:

  • Do all of the small lines on different types of syringes have the same value?
  • How can I determine the amount of medication in a syringe?
  • Is there a simple way to read them?

Any assumption or confusion about the quantity of medication contained within a syringe places the patient's health and safety at risk. Students must know how to read syringes accurately to administer the correct dosage to patients and avoid medication errors.

Here's a solution

The Draw 8 mini-game presents a fun way for students to confirm their ability to read syringes of various sizes. Play Draw 8 to test your skills!
