Why Lancets Hurt More Than They Should [Infographic]

Genteel-BentLancet-Post-r3-1-01While doing a study of lancing in our research facility we noticed a larger than expected variation in lance site appearance. Some sites showed much larger spotting and subjects reported more pain even when all variables (depth of lancing, gage size, site location) remained the same. This was a mystery, until we decided to look at the lances after the patients used them. We found was that while removing the safety cap from the lancet needles, patients were inadvertently pulling the safety caps off at an angle which was bending the needles. When the subjects were warned about this bending of the needles, and told to be careful of pulling the caps off straight, the variation in spotting and pain virtually went away.
