Besides needle phobia among patients, there are several more reasons to choose a needle-free epinephrine administration:

  • discrete administration method: no strange looks from bystanders when used in public
  • no risk of stick or laceration injuries
  • no accidental injections
  • no risk of erroneous injection in body fat instead of muscle tissue
  • no spare auto-injector available after incorrect use or insufficient effect

In addition, injecting a loved-one – when he or she is unable to use an auto-injector (like younger children) – may also be traumatic.
