Thread: .5 Cc in a 3ml Syringe ???

    I have 3 ml syringes and need to draw .5 cc of fluid. Where on the syringe, what line/number do I draw to?

    Thanks for all input! I am nervous, but excited, to start!

    You surely aren't doing your daily injections with a syringe that big?

    .5 cc is the same as .5 ml. A cc is the same as an ml, so draw it to the .5 cc mark.

    But I'd really get some smaller needles to inject with, if I was you. It's going to be tough to be accurate with a needle that large. Insulin syringes with 28 or 29 gauge needle work beautifully.

    3 ml syringes have longer needles than you need for sub q. Are you doing IM? Anyhow, you should see a mark half way betweem empty and 1 ml on the syringe.

    actually, it's a tiny little insulin syringe. Do I have the name wrong? it does say 3/10ths on it. I'm very confused.

    again, are you sure it only holds 3/10 of a cc? I have never seen them that small. The smallest I have seen are 0.5 cc insulin syringes.

    Ok, thanks everyone, but, I'm still confused. My syringe say's 3/10 cc and is marked 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 units. Is this too small. I am doing IM. I also have some larger ones that are marked 3 ml and have increments of 10 up to 40 on one side and marked to 3 on the other in 1/2 increments (they also have a longer needle). If I use those, will I draw up to the 1/2 mark? Do the longer needles hurt more?

    Thank you again, I def want to get this right. Ya'll are very nice to respond. : )

    If you are doing IM, you need the longer needles in order to reach the muscle. So, you need to use the 3 ml syringe and draw up to the 1/2 mark (if you want 0.5 cc). pain from the needle depends on the gauge of the needle. The higher the number of gauge, the smaller the needle. For example, a 27 gauge needle is much smaller than an 18 g needle. Hope this helps )

    I also have insulin syringes with 31 needles very small. I have "units" but it appears as if 20 units is 200 cc Victoria

    Victoria, I don't believe you will be able to do IM with insulin syringes. Usually those are for subq which is not into the muscle, usually given in stomach or thigh area. Are you supose to be doing IM (intra muscular) 200iu would be a high dose for IM, ususally subq is 200iu

    Hmmm i thought it was correct for subq in the thigh area so I believe that 200 is correct
