Safety syringes – A Historical Outlook

The origin of injecting is as old as human civilization when weapons such as blowpipes and poison tipped darts were used to introduce foreign substances into the body involuntarily or voluntarily. However, the introduction of syringe type devices known as ‘clysters’ (device for giving enemas) can be regarded as the ancestor of the modern syringes. The credit for the invention of the syringes goes to many people that include Christopher Wren, Pascal and Robert Boyle with the first intravenous injection recorded during the 17th century.
