Methodologies to insulin administration

Insulin is administered by two routes of delivery: Injection and Infusion.
Insulin syringe: This is the most common insulin delivery method. The classic injection device is an insulin syringe. The plastic, disposable syringes currently are available in three sizes, and hold up to 30, 50 or 100 units of insulin. The needles are fine (up to 31 gauge) with lengths ranging from 3/16th of an inch for infants, to ½ inch or more for adults. The insulin is injected into the layer of fat (subcutaneous tissue) just under the skin.
Infusion: Human regular insulin may be injected directly into the vein in a hospital setting under close medical supervision only. Insulin is added to intravenous fluids, and the insulin dose and blood sugar are strictly monitored. The intravenous route of delivery is only given under a doctor’s orders in a hospital to facilitate the management of diabetes during surgery or an intensive care stay.
