Blood clotting time in the syringe?

This tabby cat is an amateur when it comes to self-administered intravenous injections. Sometimes, she will hit a vein, drawback a little blood, then lose the vein. She wants to know for how long it is safe to try again

always good to ask questions!

Hmmm, a very good and interesting question

In my Cat`s Experience until the Needle get closed up by the Blood,
but whats happen if People use a real big Needle?

The Blood get bad in different Times,
Vein Blood less quick than the Arterial Blood because of the Oxygen!

Re: Blood clotting time in the syringe?

SWIM feels it necessary to point out that using a larger gauge needle purely to prevent blocking is somewhat counter-productive, as it'll be harder to get the hit in the first place, and mess up your veins much faster, so causing more chances of your future hits blocking before you can get them...

However, if you've got some blood in a hit whilst using a small guage insulin-type needle, and it's starting to congeal, try squirting it out of the pin before it blocks, add a bit more water, a little more citric, warm it up a bit, not a lot, don't boil it or anything, and you should be good to go again.

SWIM has noticed in the past the vastly differing thicknesses of her blood from one day to the next, depending on how hydrated she is, how well she slept, how much she's been using etc...so sometime her blood is really thick, and blocks pins quite quickly, and other times it is much thinner. SWIM guesses this could be given as another reason to look after oneself, and eat, drink and sleep well.

Re: Blood clotting time in the syringe?

Good tips if it does start to congeal a little are:

  • Boil some hot water and put it in a glass then put the cap on the syringe and put the syringe in the glass for a few minutes.
  • If SWIY find the blood has caused the end of the needle to block use your lighter on the tip of the needle and this usually causes it to unblock itself
Stay safe.

Re: Blood clotting time in the syringe?

When blood is exposed to air then it starts to congeal within about 3 minutes, so when it's in a syringe it should take longer but not much longer. Within about 5 minutes the blood will start to congeal, especially when air gets in the syringe. There are other things to consider as well though, like ones own ability to clot in normal circumstances, sometimes heroin users don't have a good diet and lack vitamin K which is found in leafy green vegetables which far too many non users don't get enough of let alone addicts.

So if you don't eat leafy greens your blood is more likely to clot or less likely?

A friend once had his ears pierced and woke up to blood all over his pillow the next morning because of a deficiency of vitamin K. An incomplete diet will result in your blood being unable to clot properly. Some substances can also increase the chances of dangerous clotting. Taking daily multi-vitamins is always a good idea as well--especially if one does not consume a healthy diet.

Stay safe.
These are the most widely used techniques - globally it seems, as these are the basic (and usually all of) advice any junkie will give on clogging rigs in Romania, too.

Which I find pretty ...let's say "weird"... as for SWIM they never ever worked - not even making slightest difference let alone unclog that damn needle.... And SWIM did try these both maaaany times.

The only real thing working for her is squirting it all out & dilute-reheat, then try again.
Most of the time having to cut that rig's head off to be able to squirt precious gear out....
Cutting insulin heads off with scissors (cut the plastic rig itself at the needle-end of the barrel) is always fucking up SWIM's scissors-holding fingers so fucking painfully
